Wine (or Diet Coke) and Canvas

Look what I did tonight! I had so much fun and am still in shock over my creation. I actually painted something. Like a real painting, not finger paint. With a brush and canvas and everything!

My friend Cindi has been to several events hosted by this place called Wine and Canvas. They have a studio but also do events at local restaurants around Indy. Basically you go and drink (and eat if you want to) and take a painting class in the banquet room or a restaurant. It was fan-flipping-tastic.

My clean pallete and blank canvas

We started by making a sunset. I learned all about blending blending and blendig some more (just like makeup application).

My friend Cindi, hard at work.

Working on my sunset. I chose diet coke instead of wine mostly because I had to drive myself home. There were some super yummy smelling appetizers around, making me think we should go back to this place to eat sometime.

My completed sunset!

We took a drying (and potty) break and came back to add a tree. I was not too great at the art of a delicate brush stroke. In other words, I lay it on thick.

My finished tree.

Finishing up our trees. Don't we look like real arteeests?

My finished tree and sloppy pallette.

Ta-da! I'm thinking that the red walls of our kitchen is a good home for this one, and already mentally finding spots for paintings from future events!

There were 87 people there all making the same beautiful creation.

Thank you Cindi. I had sooooo much fun!
I got to check out their calendar and do this again. And again and again.
