I am making up the name of the painting because I cannot for the life of me remember it. We've talked off and on about participating in a paint nite, so I finally said, why not. The first step was getting tickets. Now we think we'd like to do this at least once a month, especially in the winter time when there is not a whole lot of other things we can do.
So the goal was to paint this:
The example was on the right, the painting on the left was the teacher taking us through the painting step by step. A few things we noticed immediately: I'm a messy painter. I kept getting paint everywhere, and the fiance was a very neat painter and really liked doing all the blending in the sky. I think we nailed it pretty good:
And we got to drink margaritas and eat mexican food at the same time to boot!
I think the thing that surprised me the most? Was how much the beau enjoyed painting. It's a breath of fresh air to find someone who likes doing some of the same hobbies that I do and who leaps in full feet first.
