Good morning. Tina here.
Last week my sisters-in-law and I went to a cute little shop in Folsom, called Paints, where we painted and drank wine while we followed along with the instructor creating an island landscape. It is rather like paint by numbers except you end up with differences since you start with a blank canvas.
The instructor would show us how to go about painting the sky, tree, hula girl, etc., on a piece of paper. I like the way her samples turned out. She showed us the painting below in the beginning to give us an idea of how our paintings would look.
Everyone immediately got into the spirit of the class, even before the wine was poured. It was fun to look around at the walls and see all the samples other classes had followed.
The instructor completed the painting below. She even showed us how we should sign our paintings.
Before the class we ate at a great sushi restaurant just down the street, and sat next to a family, a couple and their two daughters, who ended up sitting next to us in class also.
