I did some painting!

Paint night with Anna-Lisa! It was at the Perth Legion. What a fun time. I was a bit worried about being in such a large group, but I did OK.

Yes, my friend tells me, 'trust you to be different.' This is what Anna-Lisa said, to make it our own. I taught elementary art, as part of my integrated curriculum, for 25 years. My kids were encouraged to do their own thing. None of my student's art looked the same.


The woman with the lovely sunset colours is an actual artist.


I finished it off at home, on the back deck, with some sharpies! Nebuchadnezzar is featured prominently. My daughter gave me something she painted at a similar event in 2013.

Love it, I so admire you for daring to do a challenge, and this is one to hang on the wall.

Paint parties are loads of fun aren'\t they? They have one up here in Pembroke at least once a month at one location or another.
My friend Viv and I went to one last month.

These things are getting kind of popular. It's an interesting phenomenon.

You look like you're having a lot of fun. Now i couldn't do any painting. I would be very frustrated.

Well that looks like so much fun! Love the bugs in the bottom one. I should do that some day - we have a place somewhat locally called the purple easel.

So much fun and creativity. But, where is the wine? I thought these paint parties were supposed to have wine.

@EASHL You can see the wine in my 2nd photo! We were in the Perth Legion, you see!
