Painting Adventure to Canvas and Cocktails!

Yesterday (Sunday) was really good, despite the cold I think I have. In the morning, one of my best friends and I went to Canvas and Cocktails (one of those places where they lead a group of people through a painting and supply you with all the equipment)… We’ve been once before, and it’s always a load of fun! Plus, wandering around and seeing the other paintings is fun, especially since no one ever has the same one. There is a really hard painting of a feather on display that we’re thinking of attempting when we see it on the calendar.

So, yesterday’s painting was fruit. There were two options: strawberries and watermelon. They were able to offer two options because they had almost identical steps the entire way through. I chose to do the watermelon painting, and Anne did the strawberries. Here are a few photos I took during the class:

The first break was to let our backgrounds dry before we painted the fruit!

I love painting; it’s very therapeutic for me. I’m able to completely immerse myself in the painting, and let the world and all of my symptoms melt away. Plus, I think it’s fun to have rainbow hands for the rest of the day (I’m not exactly neat) 😛
