Getting out of the box...

Have you ever thought about doing something completely different, than what your used to?  When someone suggested we spend a night at a Paint and Sip studio, I knew I was in.  Not that I can draw worth beans, but I have that sipping thing down to a science.


Being Halloween junkies that we are...
Once we saw this "Jack"  we were sold.
If we were going to give this adventure a try, 
he would be the reason why!

Off we went, to the Whimsy Art Studio.


Getting all set up...
dare I point out that some of us look like we have excelled at that 
sipping thing already!  
LOL!!!


We got right down to business and got serious with our background.
This is when my confidence kicked in and thought I was a professional!
Throw a little paint of the canvas, use a lot of water...
Heck this painting thing's a piece of cake!
RIGHT!


Backgrounds complete...now's where I get that rude awakening!
Artist I'm "not".


Suddenly the giggling stopped


the concentration kicked in


The reality that we were actually creating this guy
hit us...


And you know...
He didn't look too bad for a bunch of beginners.
With the exception of Shona that is!
;-)


A short 2 1/2 hrs later, and we all had our masterpieces.
Each one different, each with their own personality...
but definitely "Jack".


We are all just pretty darn pleased with our 
pieces of "art"!

Let the Halloween Haunting begin...

:-)
Keep on Stitchin'
but give something "new" a try!

  1. I would have joined when I saw Jack, too. :) I have carved his face in pumpkins and I have painted his face on a fake white pumpkin. All of your paintings look fabulous and you look like you had a good time. Way to go.
