sips n strokes

saturday night i went to sips n strokes with a couple of my friends. it was a last minute thing. we usually schedule to go a few weeks in advance, but we just decided to go that day. the class wasn't full, and it actually ended up being a fairly small class.

the painting wasn't one that i was crazy about, but i really enjoy going there and painting so i went!

this was the paint when we started. it looks nice and pretty here, but it got messy after a while.

i'll go ahead and warn you. the painting doesn't look very good until the very end. i just kept looking at mine and wondered when it was going to look good.

here are the stages of the painting. i took pictures every time we took a break to let the paint dry.

and the finished product! i ended up just doing my own thing towards the end, and i like how it turned out. i think i could have painted all night trying to make it look good, but i got to the point where i knew i needed to stop, so i threw my paint away. that stopped me! now that i haven't been looking at it for a few hours, i really like it!

it's really a lot of fun, and it's a great little girls night activity. you can take wine if you want (hints the name), but we didn't take any on that trip. they recently opened one really close to me, so i'm going to have to start taking advantage of that!!

Although I know for a fact I would never be able to paint that good, it sure sounds like tons of fun to attend something like that! I think your painting turned out very well!
