Girls Night Out

Last week Lynn invited me to attend a Girls Night Out painting event with her.  She also invited our friend Leigh and Lynn's mama, Kitty.  Now, painting is not really my thing, but Lynn and I haven't spent much time together outside our church services since December 3---she and I are both taking a short break from running---so I was up for spending some fun time with her!

When I told my children that I was going to a painting class, Olivia laughed!  My whole family is well aware of my lack of artistic ability!  Anyway, Tuesday night I went, and we had a fun time!  The teacher was really sweet and encouraging, and she broke the painting down step by step so even a novice like me could be successful!

 Here is the paint palette.  Pretty colors!

 First, we drew with pencil.

Then, after about three hours, this is what we ended up with!

My children were impressed!


  1. Beautiful artwork! I like those vibrant colors. I'm glad you had a fun night with friends.

  2. Okay, I am totally impressed! You are a terrific artist. I could never do that. What a fun thing to do with friends.
