Artist Demonstration: Leo Mancini-Hresko

This past July, we had the pleasure of hosting Leo Mancini-Hresko for a painting demonstration.  We didn't know before he arrived if he was planning to paint an interior or a figure and were delighted to learn he would be painting his beautiful wife Elpida!

Set-up was a breeze (even if the weather was warm) and as Leo started painting a crowd started to gather around, watching & asking questions.

Leo is a great multi-tasker with his ability to talk & answer questions (and even sing a few lines from a song) while he is painting... charming the crowd!

We look forward to having Leo back to do a fall plein air landscape demonstration near the gallery and perhaps on the banks of the Charles!  Once he returns from a plein air painting competition in Vermont and then a painting trip with fellow artists to Russia this month... lucky, busy Leo!   You can keep up with him on his own blog:
