Mother/Daughter Painting

This week my daughter and I attended a “Paint and Wine Palette”.  If you haven’t been to one, it’s “Painting for Dummies” only on a classier scale and with the option to buy wine or sodas while you paint.  The instructor sits in the front and paints while explaining what she’s doing while you follow along.  By the end of the evening everyone ends up with the same painting only really different depending on their talent and alcohol consumption.  To be fair, everyone was so focused on following along there wasn’t anyone consuming much of anything except paint fumes. Our painting was
titled “April Showers Bring…” There were moments when it was frustrating because I couldn’t see what she was doing exactly, or because mine wasn’t coming out exactly like I wanted. Still, it’s amazing to sit down to a blank canvass and leave with a pretty painting. After class, they asked us to gather in the foyer for a group picture. My daughter was still tweaking (not to be confused with twerking) her painting. Her
painting was perfectly blended and looked better than the instructors. People gathered around our table taking pictures of her painting and even going as far to ask if she would sell it to them.  In case you’re wondering if I had any offers…. No, I certainly didn’t.  We had so much fun and it was very interesting to see the subtle and sometimes not so subtle differences in each painting. It was the perfect birthday gift and a great Mother/Daughter memory maker. If you haven't tried it you should. I plan on doing it again.
