we're {gogh}ing to a paint party

Friday after work, I met up with my friend Rachel and her sister Amy for a girl's night.  
A while ago we had bought a deal off of livingsocial for Gogh Paint-n-Party and we were so excited to try out this class.  None of us had been to one of these parties before. 
How it works is there is a painting that everyone in the class tries to mimic a certain painting.  I knew right away that I wanted to make more unique, so I changed up the colors.  I really love the way red and blue look together and that it what I decided to go with.  
It was cool to see how each of our paintings ended up different.  We each added our personal touch and preference.  I think we did pretty good if I do say so myself :)

It's probably been about 3 years since I have painted.  I had forgotten how much I love to paint.  It is one of those hobbies where I can truly forget about any stress or worry that I might have and fully concentrate on the task at hand.  Painting is so relaxing and also very rewarding.  I just love the feeling I get when I finish and see what I have accomplished; a unique, one of a kind creation.
I think I need to start painting again.

I love your painting! I have never heard of those clases, but I'll have to look into them. How fun! Maybe I need to plan a girls night at my house with some blank canvas', paints and lots of tarps :)

Oh, I love it! How fun! The red and blue do look great together - I don't think I would have thought to go that direction, but it does look fantastic. Just came across your blog and am looking forward to following you! xo
