I've been doing a lot of paintings lately! I'm not sure where I've found the time between running the kids here and there this summer but I've managed to get a lot of paintings done.
We'll call this one Feathers I suppose. Surely though you have a better title I could use! Feathers is a bit boring!!
And this one I'll call...uh....I can't think of anything. What do you suggest?
I am really no good with words and naming paintings.
Have you ever heard of a painting party? I never had either but my town librarian was telling me about it. You and your friends can come to a space where an instructor leads you all in completing the same painting. Something simple and fun. Well, our town librarian, Angie, and I have decided to try it, with me as the instructor, and see what kind of response we might have. If it goes well these painting parties might become a monthly thing, we'll just have to see.
Anyhow, to get ready for this I've been doing some paintings in about an hour. My theory is this; if it's simple enough that I can paint it in one hour then a group of non-painters should be able to finish it in about two hours or so. We'll see how it goes.
The next couple pics aren't great, I took them with my phone. This owl, man it gave me fits. I didn't plan it well and I ended up painting this canvas three times before I had something I was pleased with. I still don't like owls but I thought they were a good subject to start with.
This sunflower though, this was an easy one and I was pretty proud of how this one turned out. I probably painted this one in less than an hour.
Have you ever done a painting party? Would you ever be interested in painting with a bunch of friends? I could see how it would be appealing to people; an opportunity to be creative but with an instructor to guide you there is less anxiety of failure. I'm really excited about this! I sure hope we have a good response!
