Picture this: a big room, tables and tables of canvas and paints, lots of happy women sipping glasses of their favorite beverage while learning how to paint a picture of their choice, now there is a great concept for a booming business. A local woman developed this concept and now she is marketing franchises for the business. There are four shops locally, each featuring a different painting nightly.
Tonight I went with a close friend and a group of her friends. My friend didn't think blue would match her decor so she changed up her color scheme to match her home. Check out our work:
Everyone paints the same thing, but each painting is individual. Here is mine. I am going to work on my orchids some more. I'm not completely happy with them.
This is my second time. Our first painting was of a Tuscan landscape. In this photo you can see how engrossed in the task everyone was:
I love to see how varied each person's work is from the next.
At the end of the evening everyone is relaxed and happy. Spending a few hours being creative is better than a bottle of Prozac if you ask me. Here we are with our masterpieces.
Perhaps a Sips n Strokes will open near you soon. If it does I hope you will make reservations, take lots of friends and have a ball painting something fun.
