Abstract art {please do not laugh}

Ok, so I have told ya'll before I am no Picasso!
We know this, obviously.  However, I decided to try my hand at some abstract painting.
A few friends and I thought it would be a fun night out.  There was  a groupon online for buy one get one.
OK, I am in.


I knew going into it, it would be a fun night regardless of the art outcome.
It was a small little art place close to home.
Hey, you could even bring your own wine or beer if you would like.
We did indulge in one.


The instructor was great...forgot her name and forgot to take a picture.
I guess I was very intent on learning, can't you tell?


The instructor had a painting in mind, that we were "suppose" to interpret and do ourselves with her teaching of course.
Interesting to see how we all certainly had our own twist, and did not follow the rules whatsoeva!


Very pretty...but who is thinking snow right now?


Can you guess who's is yellow?


We certainly did not have any fun!




we had a BLAST! I can't wait to do it again....




In the eyes of my 10 year old, he thought I was an artist...poor kid has no clue.
As you can see I need to take the class again,again, and again.

I am no Picasso indeed, I stand true to my word!
Debbiedoosdaisydoodles, that is what one of the gals called my flowers, was that a compliment? 
Ok sure it was!
Happy Saturday everyone!

Debbie, apparently my daughter thinks you have some talent! Yellow is her absolute favorite color, and she likes it, so that just confirms that you have the official title of "budding" artist. Congrats!

Let me know if you have another email I can send them too, thanks Maureen.

I'm no Picasso either, but I don't think your canvas is half bad dear! The up close shots of your daisy doodles look good. Then again, I don't have the eye of Picasso either!

I knew, before even LOOKING at your painting it was gonna be awesome...and,
SURE 'NUFF !!
How fun that would be....hope someone does that around here. I'd jump in with both feet, just'cause YOU did, but I would never, in one hundred trillion years, show it on my blog UNLESS by some freak of nature and I was struck by lightening and the Heavens opened up, mine came even CLOSE to yours.
It really is adorable....and I LOVE the yellow.:) So glad you had fun....and I might add that you looked like a million dollars doing your painting.:)

Your painting is great! I have done 6 of those "follow the leader" paint classes over the last year. I love them but they get expensive. It's the most fun with a group of about 8 girlfriends, beverage of choice and nibbles. My favorites are my 2 oil paintings...the colors are so vibrant! Hoping to do another class soon!

Looks like you all followed the instructions to the letter! To be creative. It was amazing to me when I took painting classes and the teacher would say, "OK, we're all going to paint 'this'. These are the colors to buy before class, this is the size canvas, which brushes, yada yada." And, just as you all did, we all looked at her painting, and when she said, "We're all here to have fun!" That's about all it took for us to go on our merry way to creativity!

I mean, just as you all did, we followed the rules, we followed some basics - a few, well maybe just a couple, OK one - we all cleaned our brushes!

We had a blast and all felt as proud! I love the Debbiedoosdaisydoodles! You've just got to keep the name, make a name tag!

Great job,
Donna

IMHO, Picasso painted dark and depressing things...you would NEVER be like him! :-) I took art lessons for a bit after retirement and one lesson we had to do a Picasso woman ~ not my style at all.

You know I love the color you used and yes, it's the best one of the group! Glad you had fun and yes, the other girls did great too.

I think painting must be in the air right now, because I want to paint too. I was looking at supplies the other day. No lessons for me, I'm just going to throw caution to the wind...or in this case paint to the canvas!
