Paint Party Friday

I attended a Paint and Sip! It was a week ago. We've been having fun showing my friend, Yam, about the town.  She is an amazing person, and we've been having so much fun. Yam's energy and spirit is just wonderful. We've traveled miles and miles, showing her THIS Perth (Ontario), Westport , Kingston, our lochs, and other parts of the region. (More on this later!)

Paint and Sip

A fundraiser for the North Lanark Regional Museum, I was happy to participate. (This is where I donated my family portraits!)

Veronica was the artist, but she had another artists, Tara, to help her.
Melissa organized the event as a fundraiser for the Museum. I think there were about 14 of us. I will, of course, do some final work on my painting, as I did last time after my paint and sip: adding some fine work in marker.  The Polish flag will become a Canadian one! Hopefully, I will have time next week!

It is interesting the styles of various participants. The gentleman was very thoughtful, using precision, pointillism technique,  as well as a pencil to plan. He also added a spinnaker to his sailboat. Most of the pieces were gentle, calm, lovely pastel colours, but I knew where I was headed!
I ruined my trees. Veronica suggested some yellow on top of the green to give the trees more depth. I ruined them.
The couple at my table were fun. She wanted her hubby to attend, since he was interested in buying a sailboat. Some of the attendees were supporters of the Museum.

The drive home was wonderful. I traveled through Appleton, just as the sun was setting. On highway 15, as dusk set, I encountered a deer and a fox crossing the road. Later, nearer home, a skunk scooted across the highway only a few metres in front of the car!
