Vin et Van Gogh

Friday, December 28, 7-9 p.m.
at Gallery 104 LaGrange, KY

Grab a few of your friends and make plans to join me and paint this fun
16 x 20 Blue Hydrangea.

This is a fun, no pressure class and you will go home with a finished painting
and the knowledge of how to do it again.

The class is $40 with a minimal charge for the hors d'ouvres bar
and you can reserve your spot by contacting Gallery 104 at
502-222-3822
and signing up for this class.

After all the Christmas holiday fun,
get your sisters, cousins, nieces, etc. together and plan on this for a night of fun and friendship and memory making.  

You're provided with everything you need to complete the painting, including: paints, brushes, apron, easel and canvas.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and you should arrive at least 20 minutes before the class begins promptly at 7:00 p.m.

All registrations must be paid for in advance no later than 3 p.m. on Wednesday,
December 26.

As a side note,
we will be lightening up the background on this to just a hint of green or a beautiful cream.

This promises to be lots of fun.

Return from the Dark Side
Or
How quickly can things go south.
Those of you who know me,
Know I’m not the healthiest horse in the barn.
My immune system is worthless and I’ve been sick for over a week.
The point is,
Things can go south pretty quickly.
I haven’t painted in over two weeks,
My room looks like an explosion happened in there,
The rest of the house is in need of serious attention.
My point is,
Without constant attention, our lives, our loves,
Our talents
Take a real beating.
It doesn’t take long before things aren’t going well and quite possibly have fallen into chaos.
Artists know you have to paint often for the brush to become part of you.
When you haven’t painted for a while are you nervous when you next pick up the brush.
I know I’m nervous.
Looking forward to it, but nervous nonetheless.



Just adding one of my favorite paintings
Reminding me, I can do this.
I can do this
I can do this.
