wine and design night!

Last night two friends and I decided to get down with our creative self(s) and become the true artists we've always known we could be. Or maybe one of us had a gift certificate to a place called Wine and Design and brought the other two of us along to drink wine and paint.
Either way - we went, we conquered, and we almost quit our day jobs to become artists.
Wine and Design is such a fun concept - you bring your own cocktail of choice, choose a painting theme to tackle, and get artistic for two hours with your friends. So fun! I highly recommend it! Being in Charleston, we choose the seagrass & ocean theme of course. The teacher takes you step by step through the process, most of which I documented below. Honestly, they make it practically dummy proof.

And then you have the finished product!

Not too bad for a girl with zero artistic talent?
The best part is the end, when you see all of the paintings complete and see the slight differences in each persons painting even though you were hearing the same instructions.

I'm already itching to go back and paint again.
Here's to making this a good Tuesday!

So pretty! I am nervous to go to one of those type of classes because I am definitely not an artist!

Lindsay said...

This is right up my alley! You picture came out awesome too!

There has been talk about doing one of these very soon.
There's one down the street from our house. I actually checked on the price yesterday.
They are SUPER popular in South Louisiana and most people paint fleur de lis.
I think if I brought another fleur de lis in our house hubs might freak! HAHAHA!
