Pumpkin Spice and Paint

Happy Friday! I really shouldn’t complain about how long my week has been since I’ve spent the last two weeks exploring Texas, but I’m tired. I’ll be unwinding by the pool tomorrow and then decorating my parents’ house for Autumn Sunday! Little things like that give us reasons to be happy I think.

Speaking of happy things, I went with a friend to a fun place in my town called Wine & Design! The idea behind it is people getting together to have a glass of wine and paint. I did a painting here a year or so ago with my friend Lindsey and we painted a bird in sunset (post here). This time, my friend Amanda and her soon-to-be roommate Caitlin went to paint a fall themed canvas!

Amanda and I have known each other since before Kindergarten. When we were painting I remembered in my memory box that I still had one of her birthday party invitations. She remembered that at one of my birthdays she wore a frilly dress and socks thinking it was a party to dress up for. Apparently it wasn’t! Several of us ended up riding bikes and she fell off of hers. Good times.

Before we started painting, we inventoried our supplies- paint brushes, paper towels, aprons, mason jar full of water to rinse our brushes in, and finally paint saucers. For the painting we did, we only used black, white, mustard, brick red, royal blue, and brown.

Our instructor, Angelica, was really incredible! She’s from Mexico originally but went to college for art in Los Angeles. While we were painting our canvases she was putting the finishing touches on this gorgeous mason jar canvas!

The finished product was amazing! The best part was that everyone’s canvas looked a little different. We all put our own unique touches on our artwork. I just love mine. It’s the perfect decoration for the coming season.

 

Here are a few other pretty paintings that were hung up all around the studio! The black cat in the pumpkin is my favorite! The cat belongs to Angelica and she told me that she adopted her from the animal shelter after someone had found her behind our local Taco Bell. Ironically, I remember several times last year trying to get her to come to me but she was too scared. I’m so happy she has a good home now!

Here’s the link to the studio in my town! Have a lovely weekend!
