The Martini Bar in Denver Colorado frequently (Every Thurday, Friday, and Saturday night) brings painters in, and pays them to paint. It will also display thier work gallery style while they are there. While I was in Denver on business I found it to be a wonderful treat to get to watch the act of creative painting as it happened. And it definitely added to the ambience of the bar.

Point, rather than ask here in this forum "who wants to watch me paint", ask that question as part of a marketing plan, maybe get a band to accompany you, or learn to tell stories that "illustrate" the painting. The amazing thing is that if you offer a product or service any kind, you may well find someone who is willing to pay for it.
