Why yes, I am feeling quite French today mainly because of my recent adventures in painting. My friend Sarah and I signed up for a Colors and Bottles night through Groupon. Basically the premise is that you pay a fee and go and drink and be merry with 25 strangers and paint for 3 hours. And that is just what we did.
We picked a date that worked and then realized that the painting we would make was on the calendar.

Anyway, the food was great, and I would definitely go back to the Modern Cafe in the future. We sat down at easels and were given brushes and acrylic paint. The teacher gave us some instruction but in general there were no real "rules".
When it comes to painting, I have some technique but I just don't have the vision to see something I want to paint and then make it happen. Therefore some instruction was nice, I didn't have to stress over what to make just follow the general steps.
So we made a blue sky, and the poppies, and the ground. There was someone who even made a whole mountain scene in the background.
But here is my painting,
I think I will totally sign up to do this again. It was a nice and relaxing evening and fun as you tried to recreate a pretty painting from scratch.
* Reality is that I am not in Paris nor wearing any of those things. :oP
