Late last Friday (and continuing Saturday morning), a few girlfriends and I held a LIVE paint party! We all headed up to Diana's house after work and stayed overnight. She lives on a beautiful stretch of beach on the river and has a huge dining room table with an incredible view. The snow is almost gone though we discovered there is still a bit left when we went for a walk along the beach. All my friends hadn't painted in years but were ready, willing and able to try! I brought a great sampler set of paints and both Diana and I bought canvas boards and canvases. It was an excellent time!
My favourite of my two little paintings is this simple one:
We played with paints at her dining room window with an incredible view:
Spread out and painting away
The view post-winter
The beach and river inspired several efforts:
Teresa playing with watercolours
Loraine's beach morphed into one much further south!
Deborah focused in much closer:
Her spring-like version
Abstracts were also part of the party:
Diana has the blues
Teresa geometrically and vibrantly inspired
We had a wonderful time. It reminded me very much of doing jigsaw puzzles with my girlfriends. There was something incredibly calm and relaxing as we worked away on our own little projects yet worked together. Sharing the comradery and the experience. I loved it! (As did they!) Great creativity and conversation. Aren't girlfriends wonderful!
The rest of the week hasn't been terribly productive for art and it took me until Wednesday to visit all the PPF players. (Sorry about that.) The next two Fridays, I will be out of town so I'm unsure what my ability to visit or participate will be like, but I will try to get around to seeing everyone's efforts when I can. I so LOVE seeing your work!!
