I have never considered myself in the least bit artistic... creative, maybe; but artist? No way. I just have never been able to translate something from my brain into a piece of art using my hands. Paul lovingly calls me "the gorilla" when it comes to things like painting details or using a steady hand for anything. The whole hand-eye coordination just doesn't come naturally for me. So when I heard that our MOPs group was having a painting party, I thought I would go along, have a good time, hang out kid-free with some girls... little did I know I would come home with a piece of art... created by ME!
Here is our little group at Painting with a Twist
Our group painted the picture "Looking Up." We were walked through each step by an instructor.
And here is my finished product!
I have to say, when I was painting it, I didn't think I'd actually want to hang it in my house, but now that its here, I LOVE it! There's just something about knowing that I painted that myself!
So, where to hang it? I really don't have any "art" like this in my house. I'm usually not attracted to paintings, and everything we have on our walls are photographs, a few prints, mirrors, and old windows.
Right now I just have it hung over the mirror in the dining room.
Maybe it will inspire me to paint something else... or to at least try something new every once in a while!
