Paint & Sips have become a thing. And I love it! I don’t think they are all created equal, so I was super happy that the one I got to participate in actually felt like we created… real art!
Because I am so NOT an artist, not in the draw/paint sort of way anyway. I can draw a stick figure like nobody’s business. And give me some drafting tools and I can probably draw you a sweet building… but nature? Probably not… and people? Well, I’ve already mentioned stick people are where it’s at for me. ;)
So a few months ago I got to go out with some friends for a fun night of wine and painting at this amazing little shop in Gig Harbor, Mood. And it was fantastic. I took some cell phone snaps along the way, so here goes…
Even seeing all the steps I don’t really see how those awkward looking white lines turned into a forest of autumn birch trees. But I’m so glad they did… because now it proudly hangs in my bedroom above my dresser!
Especially because it holds a memory of a great night with friends… the first time all of us had escaped without our little babies (all born within three months of each other) together! A great night off!
I’m looking forward to another one of these, probably with Mom, because she has a friend that leads some fantastic classes… of which she’ll show you an example in her next post!!
