A couple friends and I signed up for a Wine and Canvas painting session - it was so much fun! The painting we selected was a little more challenging for someone who has never picked up a paint brush, but I managed! I am pretty darn happy with how it turned out, except for that tree in the front...it's really bothering me, but I'm afraid if I try to fix it, I'll just end up ruining the painting!

Here are a couple in-progress pics...I think I'm hooked now...




And here is the finished painting! Smiley Thanks for looking!!

I love those "paint and drink" places!  You did a fantastic job -- I promise you the first time I did one of those classes, my painting did not look anywhere as good as yours.   Tongue

    It is a great job on your first at painting and You did it. It is awesome at this painting. It is perfect at fall season painting. Why not you paint at four season fall, winter, spring, summer. Just a idea.

    Again, It is a nice job to paint it.

    Thanks everyone! I'm afraid I may have picked up a new addiction - I want to go back for more!!

    Photographer - that's a great idea about painting a scene for each season...I may have to give that a try! Smiley

    spikefan - you should give it a try!! Smiley It's a little intimidating but once you get in the zone, there's no turning back!

    mariak - oh wow - those are some great things you have pinned to your art journal board on Pinterest! Thanks for adding this to the collection!
