...at this whole painting thing. Yeeaaahh, the ladies from my company got a company paid "ladies night out" at a local (amazing) art painting studio called "Cheers to Art".
I'm totally kidding though, I'm not a pro...but I have to say, I was kiiiind of hyperventilating before the class started because I'm a TERRIBLE artist. I can't even draw a stick figure correctly if my life depended on it. The lady in charge thought she'd comfort me by saying "don't worry honey, this is the easiest painting I'll be doing all month!" ...great, that makes me feel better......
Before we dive into my painting, look how cute this place was! It was a full blown natural light studio, with a boutique attached. How adorable, right?
The paintings above were all done in the previous months as the "project of the night". Lots of them reflected our big city, which I thought was pretty neat!
Then began the painting... oh did I mention we had a private party?? Haaaaaaaaaayyy.
So the original painting was supposed to be all different colored vases, with a few blocks of color on them... some green leaves and crooked twigs hanging out. The little heart of rebellion in me screamed "BE DIFFERENT"... & did I listen?
You bet I did.
Watch my artistry unfold....... ;)
I didn't want to add the green leaves, because it was just too bright and cheery for me to mess with. Those leaves were gonna be messing with my vibe.
So I have to say, I really pretended to play "artist" last night. I think I'll go back soon. *ahem, CALEB?
It's a tiny thumbnail, so forgive me...but this is what it was supposed to look like:
No thanks, my love for yellow and corals just had to be shown ;)
This was totally outside of my comfort zone...buuuut I loved it.
Ever done something like this?
One quick Friday letter to my girl, Erin:
YOU ARE COMING HOME TONIGHT AND I CAN'T WAIT TO SQUEEZE THE CRAP OUT OF YOUUUUUUU. Don't ever leave me for another week again.
