We stayed at the event for about 4 hours along with a crowd of Wyland's fans. He started and finished this manatee painting which was later auctioned for $16,000!! Not bad for a few hours of painting! One of my favorite things about him, is that he doesn't follow the "rules" of art (as if such a thing exists!). He mixes oils and acrylics and oil pastels. Hmmm, basically, he uses mixed media!
