It was a happy day for me to get to join in on the celebration for Carla's birthday yesterday. Her daughter, Josie, my dear sister-friend invited some of Carla's friends and some of her own to trek to Kirkland for a painting party! I have to admit, I was pretty darn intimidated going to paint. I've never been one to be able to blend colors in paint. I have to be able to smudge things with my finger...as in charcoal, pastels to be able to create something good. Palettes and Pairings, the business that holds these painting classes, teaches you everything you need to know. You go to their website http://www.palettesandpairings.com/, choose the painting you'd like to do, and enroll in a class. There was a discount for the day we went, which was wonderful. They have all the paints, palettes, aprons and canvasses set for you, and there is coffee, tea, wine and snacks. It makes for a wonderful girls' night out.
Alas, I packed my camera bag and left it in my own van. These pictures are taken with my cell phone.
|Here's the owner and instructor. She painted right along with us, showing us what to do.|
|Voila! I will turn this blank canvas into a MASTERPIECE!|
|My cell phone has a setting where it takes the photo in negative. So cool!|
|there's my painting. I love spirals.|
