Last Friday night we hosted our monthly Cork&Canvas event, and what a spread we had! We always provide the beverages, but this group really went all out and brought a bunch of snacks to make themselves right at home, which we love so much. As you can see from that picture of our beautiful table, we were making a painting of a steaming hot mug of a beverage of your choice. Some had tea, others espresso, and I believe there were a couple Irish Coffees in there too.
It's always such a blast running these events, the evening has such a fun and relaxing pace. We turn up some music and let everybody get settled and hang out a little as they start to get their supplies prepped.
This was a fun painting to watch come along around the classroom. Different mug colors and swirl patterns were happening all over the place.
Barbara and I talked about the pros and cons of doing black outlines along the red pattern of the table cloth. She was really feeling the line work and went for it, which I was so glad to see. A unique touch on this painting for sure.
I love the way the blue in Michele's table cloth pulls in the white in different places. And don't forget to check out that fancy signature tree of her's in the bottom corner!
Here is a sneak peak at the next painting we are going to be doing here at Laura's Center for the Arts on December 13th, "Snow Dusted Park."
