What I'm working on this summer...
Last Friday I did an art party for a Bachelorette party at a local restaurant. There were 16 guests. It was so much fun. The bride chose a cute picture of an owl and everyone had a hoot!!
My hubby came along to help out - he was the official paint squirter and water changer. He has said several times how much he enjoyed the evening. Since the group was made up of close friends and family there was one man in the group and he seemed to enjoy the project. He admitted that he hadn't done any art since high school. Maybe this will inspire him to pick up a pencil or paintbrush and get back into a wonderfully relaxing hobby.
These days there is so much stress in life, and so many things pulling at us competing for our time and attention. Painting is a wonderful way to beat that stress and escape for a couple of hours or true enjoyment. When you have a brush in your hand and you're doing something creative you will find that you can leave all those problems and demands behind as you concentrate on enjoying some ME time.
Start with a painting party or a beginner class (starting in September) and see how easy it is to learn to paint. Step-by-step! It's easier than it looks!
Try it, I promise you'll like it!
Making your day artfully beautiful!
