Artsy Fun On A Friday Night

Sheila's friend Nancy was in town last week, and we thought it would be fun to get together and do something.  We all have an interest in artsy things, with both Sheila and Nancy being pretty talented at drawing.  So it was decided that we should visit Just For Giggles, located in Milton, GA.  You might have a place like this around you.  You might remember that Sheila and I painted flags there last year. 

Friday night was a choose your own painting night, so we got to pick out whatever we wanted.  The instructor started out by drawing a light outline of key parts of the painting on our canvases and then instructed us on the technique and colors to use.  She would then walk around and let you know how you were doing and give suggestions.  Here's the result:
I'm very happy with the way my golden trees turned out, and Sheila's and Nancy's florals are so pretty!  The place was packed and there was even a group of guys there for a bachelor party!  Who knew?  They were all doing a painting of R2D2 and all I could think of was whether the bride of the groom to be was going to let him hang that in a prominent place in their home.  Pretty funny.

No flower photos this time.  I'm not going outside any time soon.  Spring schming.  It's been cold and rainy here for the better part of the week, with today being absolutely ugly.  Several people have kindly reminded me of the drought we had a couple of years ago.  I know, I know.  Just give me a couple of sunny days in the 80's once in a while and I'll be happy. 

The first thing that Mark told me as I was waking up this morning was "It's 45 degrees and raining."  And I said, "Do you realize how close that is to snow?".  Come on, May, don't disappoint me.  You're my favorite month of the year!  Maybe some pretty flowery photos later this week?  I'm crossing my fingers.  Until next time.
