This is as good a time as any to blog, right? Right!
Last night Sara and I checked out a Paint Nite. It was her second time going and my first…a very interesting experience because I am somehow both a perfectionist AND not a very good painter. I was paralyzed at certain points, but at least it was amusing. My owl didn't come out TOO bad…although I have to laugh at those two fat branches I made. I didn't even realize how they looked until I got them home! They seemed perfectly proportional at the time.
Sara added some snow to her painting at the last minute, even though it wasn't part of the instruction. I was really nervous for her because we both weren't sure if it would look good or wreck it! But it came out good. I feel like mine could have benefitted from some snow, too.
Anyway, it was a good time, even though the venue was a bit cramped. I would make it a monthly outing, but to be honest, in my on-going quest for minimalism, I have absolutely no desire to collect a bunch of random paintings! Maybe if I get better at it, I'll feel differently, but at this point I doubt it.
I am SUPER excited now that December is here--I'm looking forward to checking TWO big events off my 30 by 30 list…and maybe more, we'll see! Stay tuned for the updates!
