You might as well start calling me Van Gogh

Happy Tuesday all! Last night me and three of my best buds went and did a super fun thing -- painting class! I loved it so much. If you're in Dallas, You've got to try this fun thing out.  It's called Art Class Dallas. We bought it through livingsocial, but you can totally just sign up for any random day. It was BYOB, but we were too focused on our genius creations to drink -- not a problem we usually face.

Anyway, here are our creations....

Mine is on the far left. I decided to just make it as bright and busy as possible. Kind of like my whole life. My friends had a swirlier, more chaotic approach.

Here's a better look...

Mine is decidedly more organized/planned/orchestrated that my friends'. When the class was over, I got all hopped up on the leftover Malbec and tried to interpret what I came up with. I think it's the visual expression of me trying to control just one thing in my world right now. I love booze-induced efforts to be philosophical...

I'm happy with how it turned out, but really have NO idea where I'll put it. It doesn't like go with anything....at all.

Here are a couple more shots of the evening:

My sweet friends.

The nice art lady, Cynthia, who offered us infinite patience and wisdom. She knew her stuff and offered great advice/critique.

Anyway, I loved it and would TOTALLY do it again. In fact, someday when I have money and time, I think I may try to take up painting for fun. My artist friend had nice things to say about my little art baby, but really I can't ever see myself being good at it. Just for funsies.


Thanks for the comment! I"m sending you a big cuddly warm bearhug through the interwebs....
