But an abstract painting caught my eye and, deciding to give it another go, I called up Morgan to see if she'd be game. It's been a while since I saw this great girl and I was really looking forward to spending an evening with her.
The floors are splattered with a rainbow of paints and the walls are adorned with the fruits of labor past. (you can buy them for a fair price) G'nosh sets you up for success. The paltry price includes the canvas, paint, supplies and fantastic instruction. You are encouraged to bring your own snacks; creativity works up an appetite!
We quickly set about the business of putting a base coat on our canvases. Someone (me) might have spent a little too much time making this perfect, only to learn we were going to paint right over it. Whoops. The top right, framed in black, was our inspiration painting. As you can see, Morgan went for the "found art" look and just stuck her paper cup right to he masterpiece!
Instructed to step back and let it dry before we got too carried away, we then set about the business of decorating the bottle Morgan brought and we emptied. How she drove home with this bottle covered in wet paint is beyond me, but she text me when she arrived - no paint on her or the car!
We had such a great time! I love how unique each of our paintings turned out. (there were about 20 women in the class, yes, all women) Some chose to include rectangles or use different colors. Ever the rule follower, I stuck to the script and was mostly pleased with my take home. This was definitely out of my comfort zone but I really enjoyed myself. Although, not sure I'd want to tackle this solo. It was fun having a friend to visit with and consult when I was freaking out about my circles not being level!
Morgan, I had a great time catching up with you and look forward to the bash at your house once the backyard renno is done!
