On the Second of December

… we have art.

MkayBye, Stick Figures!

Just kidding. I’ve perfected the art of stick figures so I would never truly abandon them. However, tonight I attended a painting class here in Marinette by Wine & Canvas of Green Bay/Appleton. I went solo to the event because the few people I asked were unable to attend. I’m SO happy I didn’t back out because it was so much fun!

Looking at it now, there are still a few things I would change with my painting but I’m pretty happy with the results.

I love that the canvas for my painting is the same size as my “Mothers are the Buttons” canvas. No matter where I live I’ll always have the perfect place to display my artwork just by replacing my year-round canvas. Yay!

Back to the event itself…

I had the best time chatting with some of the local ladies. We all had our insecurities about our artwork but encouraged each other. When a few of the groups heard that I was there by my lonesome, they offered to include me in their group photos. So very sweet of all of them. I ensured them that I was totally okay flying solo but sincerely appreciated their offer.

One of the women I sat next to was there with her mother-in-law. The MIL was an elderly woman who lost her husband just 2 weeks ago. She didn’t like how her painting turned out compared to others, but I thought it was great. Her unsteady hand gave the painting texture that no other painting had. I tried to copy it on my a couple of my trees but failed. (Note the heavy white blobs on the tops of the trees.)

This is my happy faaaaaace.

My paint plate/palette was upside down while I pulled it out from under my easel but I caught the happy face immediately. I knew right then that it would be my photo of the day of the Idea Room Challenge.

And what a great representation of the evening.
