Painting, Wine & A Double Date

I love art; looking at it, creating it, studying it...ok not studying it ha, but painting and photography are some of my favorite things to do in my free time. Jason and I did a painting thing at Rembrandt All You Can Art a few months ago and he surprisingly had a lot of fun, even though I had to practically drag him to that first event kicking and screaming, ok not really but you know how guys are lol. He definitely didn't go willingly. I thought it would be fun to make it a double date this time with my good friend Sarah. We went to college together and both got our degrees in Graphic Design, so she and I had the upper hand in this one. Here's our art from that night. 

Blending the colors was definitely the hardest part, but the trick is making sure you brush is wet enough
Sarah doing her finishing touches
 Erik and Jason, that was Erik's first painting ever. He said it looked like someone pee'd on his lol
It took us 3 hours to finish our paintings
 I look so thrilled to be taking this pic, NOT lol 
Aww, Jason was so proud of his :) He loves fleur de lis's and this was his second one.

I would have liked to take more pics of the painting process, but we were so involved in our paintings since we pretty much all chose a level 2. Level 2's are a little more difficult and to be honest we we're struggling through it at the beginning and didn't even think we would have enough time to finish. But you know what? I love a challenge so I think I will be doing a level 3 next time.

Have any of you guys been to one of these art classes?
