I was invited to a gathering on Thursday night sponsored by my Thrivent Representative. A group of women were invited to enjoy Merlot and to paint a 'masterpiece'.
I was encouraged to bring a guest, so I invited friend Carol to come along.
As it got nearer, neither Carol nor I were very excited about going, but eventually it was too late to cancel, so we went.
When we arrived we were a little confused about the set up, eventually figured out that the hostess was treating us to the wine and snacks and sweets. Perfect! The commemorative glasses were extra, so I decided to treat Carol and I to a keep sake.
|I though it looked pretty nice at this stage of the evening.|
|The teacher asked me to take the curve out of my sunset, isn't the earth round anymore?|
|Starting to look a lot like...nothing.|
|Carol was getting the hang of the long smooth strokes, but we had to stop to fix (refill) our glasses from time to time.|
|The teacher's painting was meant to inspire us.|
|Carol got started on her weeds.|
|I think mine was better before the weeds grew.|
|Fun to see each masterpiece at completion.|

It really was a fun evening.
We were done early, so Carol and I stopped for a nightcap at Lehman's on our way home.
For not really wanting to go, we both had a very very fun evening.
I'm not sure my painting will hang in the house, maybe the sewing room, we'll see.
