Paint and Vino

First - thank you ALL for your thoughts and prayers for my friend Cathy.  I will be talking to her this weekend and will pass along all your good wishes.  It is truly appreciated.  Y'all got me teary-eyed.

Now onto some humor.  After seeing so many people enjoying these Paint and Wine nights I decided to take my mom.  While she isn't much of a drinker she is a good artist and I knew she would enjoy it.

My mom invited my stepmom (yes, we are one of those odd families where the parents and step parents all get along pretty well - I consider myself very blessed) and off we went to paint. Mom picked Starry Night which wasn't my favorite, but being the artist that she is, she knew it wouldn't be too difficult for me or my stepmom to paint.

We had a blast.  And the paintings?  Not too terrible.

Considering I had never painted before it wasn't too bad.  And to be honest, I can't wait to do it again.  I found it very relaxing.  And immediate gratification for sure.

And here's a group shot. Can you guess who is the mom and who is the stepmom?

Have a great weekend!

That looks like so much fun! I don't drink, but I do paint so I think it's something I would enjoy.

Your Mom? Looking at the photo the beautiful woman on the left.
