Melanie's Bachelorette Party!

20140525_173616.jpg

I just love weddings and all the celebration that comes along with. One year ago my family was preparing for my youngest brother's wedding in Estes Park. Such happy memories of family and friends.  There is something so beautiful about everyone coming together to celebrate two lives joining. As these memories resurface this time of year, I am also reminded of Melanie's bachelorette party that I had the privilege of doing last May. Melanie and her family and friends gathered for an afternoon of champagne and glass painting. I led them through the step-by-step flower painting lesson, and they rocked it! Their wine glasses were beautiful. Hopefully whenever they pour a glass of wine, they are reminded of good times.

Cheers!

Bird Silhouettes with Anne Marie

One of the most rewarding components of this job is leading the anxious painter to a successful outcome. Several guests at Anne Marie's party had some artistic experience, while several did not.  A few of the inexperienced painters were feeling a little anxious about painting together. I was confident that I could help them create a successful painting. Hopefully they would gain confidence through the process, and enjoy the journey too!

Our process began in Anne Marie's sunny kitchen, serenaded by a cassette tape of George Strait, and we were kept awake by a counter top full of homemade treats. As we applied the different background gradients, I gave extra attention to the beginning painters. I noticed that they gained confidence and began to make independent choices for their artwork (always a delight for an art teacher to witness.) As we painted in the branches and silhouettes, each painting took on it's own personality and the painter's style began to shine through. As our session came to a finish, I was delighted to witness everyone creating something they were proud of. Each painting was successful, personal, and I could tell the painters enjoyed the artistic process!

Rainy Reflections: Suzy's Party

This painting party was hosted by my dear friend, Suzy. I had the privilege of leading some of my most favorite women in the world through this romantic, drippy, and slightly abstract number. Oh, what fun we had! As always, there were a lot of laughs, really good food and wine, and plenty of silliness. Jamie dipping her brush into her wine was the highlight of the evening. If you are wondering, painting with wine just doesn't quite work! 

Here are the final outcomes. Great job, Ladies!
