However, in the spirit of trying something new, my husband and I hit the town last night at a Paint and Sip class! Even though I am still not artistic in the least, we had fun together and even walked away with a painting.
Here's how it works: when you sign up, you choose a painting that looks interesting to you. When you paint, the instructor shows you how to paint that particular piece of art.
We chose van Gogh's "The Starry Night."
|The Real Deal|
We started with a blank canvas...included in the price of the evening!
Then we painted! This is my hubby's arm...if the hairiness didn't already give that away!
We did all the backgrounds first, and then added in the stars, tree, houses, etc.
AND....voila! Two masterpieces! (HAH!) The top one is mine and the bottom one is my husband's.
Oh yeah...and you get to drink WINE! Hooray! If you live in Colorado, you should check it out! http://www.whimsypaintandsip.com/
All in all, the evening was a success. Even if no one will buying my art any time soon, it was something new to try! It actually reminded me how important it is to step out of your comfort zone every once in a while!
