My dear friend, Gail, has been an art teacher for close to 30 years, and she believes everyone can be an artist…no matter whether you think you can or not. She says there is a creative bent deep inside us all. So, when my daughter in law decided to treat me and her mom to an afternoon of painting at PINOT’S PALETTE. I thought Why Not…could be fun…and it was!
I was rather shocked to sit down in front of a blank canvas with no lines or numbers on it! Some fear began to arise…would I be the first to prove Gail wrong?? I can see why they encourage groups to bring in the wine or drink of choice…I did get a tad tense my first time.
It was Easter weekend and this is what the artist was teaching us to paint. She stands at the front of the class and shows us how. They are very good at coming to the rescue if you mess up. Though you can see below that my interpretation is a bit different, I think I want to do it again! I have gained a little confidence.
This is a fun piece I know I will wear alot in warmer weather. The linen is very comfortable and the color vibrant….the color is called Lipstick. Planet is rapidly becoming a favorite brand for me at ARTFUL HOME. It also brings out the artist in me!
The necklace is by local jewelry designer SUSAN BUTLER!
Next time I go to PINOT’S PALETTE, I want to paint something like this….
