Another painting party...

I signed up for another Paint N Party event, scheduled on St. Patrick's Day.  Plenty of green garb and green shiny beads were worn for the occasion.  Between instructional portions of the evening, there was singing and dancing and snacking.  Jon said this was the most difficult painting he had taught thus far, and he was pleased with what we accomplished in two hours.  It would have been nice to have just a little more time to refine the details, but that's just not possible in the time frame and type of venue.  It was pretty amazing to see how good these paintings turned out, and I'd guess there were 80 or so people painting. 

I was able to take pictures of my progress pretty easily during the first hour, but as we got into the 2nd hour, I was barely keeping up with the instruction and had no time to snap a photo.  The details we were to paint were taught quickly... furiously.  I'll share a few pics of the progress and the final piece.


  1. You did a great job!

  2. Fantastic finish!

    Sometimes "instructors" forget that what comes easily for them takes more time for others. Perhaps you could share your thoughts with him or one of his assistants.

  3. I can't believe you painted that! OMG you have talent

  4. What a interesting, and successful way of teaching such a large crowd to paint. And the results are stunning!


  5. Nice work! You're going to end up with lots of nice paintings to frame!
