Wine and Canvas – Wine glass

A good friend invited me to an evening of wine and canvas.  It was wonderful.  I forgot all of the stress of the past few weeks/months and focused on painting.  Although I didn’t follow directions (not my thing), my objective of a fun relaxing evening was accomplished.

It started with the painting we were supposed to paint and the artist walking us through measurement, outline and the order of the process.

5_paintersRumor has it there were a couple of people who weren’t amateurs.

6_paintersPeople started moving around, admiring the work of others, sometimes giving helpful hints…

  1. Wonderful, I would love to attend an art class. I wonder if somewhere inside me is the ability to draw and paint, but I doubt it. 🙂

    • Most of the people there stated they couldn’t paint, draw or weren’t the least bit creative. They all had wonderful finished paintings. Not only that, but they had a really good time.

      Thank you for visiting.
