A Fun Night Out

"Funky Tree & Flowers"
This is what I along with about 70 other people painted last night at a fun place to go, SipsnStrokes

Three of my friends and myself (hated I forgot my camera) decided we wanted to try this out. We went to the South Side location. You take a bottle of wine and snacks along with $35 and come home with a master piece. I will have to admit, after seeing 70 other paintings just like this one, I wasn't so fond of this by the time we left. I will be doing some tweaking to this painting before I hang it on my wall. But it is tons of fun! Of course when I was done, I had the knitting needles out working on my sock while the others finished.

I did find out that the Trussville studio will be opening on Feb 11th. You can go to the web-site and look on their calendar to see which painting you would like to do and register on-line. Check it out.

I'm so glad you tried it! A couple of my friends have been saying we should go, but every time we look at their calendar at the other two locations, all the "good painting" nights are filled up! Thank you so much for letting me know they are going to have a T'ville location! (And yes that sounds like fun for us knitting girls too!) I think your painting looks wonderful!
