“Every artist was first an amateur” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
So I finally went to one of those sip and paint places. You know, paint a little, sip a little, paint a little more….. and hey look at that, I am creating some art! Sprite for me tonight though. Glad I did too cause I think I was pretty focussed on the process. Really fun actually. Again, always wanted to try this. Bought a round of gift certificates for the family last Christmas and we finally all got around to making a go of it. Good times 🙂
Thought of this image tonight that was in the hopper to post I created from a raw file taken a couple blocks from the house a while ago. Another way to paint …. with a few digital plugins, but a way I like to create those evenings when I am “pretending” I am a painter. A Topaz plugin (me thinks) if you are interested.
So, I guess I should post what we painted tonight now that I mentioned it. A couple of iPhone quickies we shot just as we were leaving. Not too bad I think. The face was tough, but again, great fun! Give them a try sometime as they are all over the country. Uptown Art is the place 🙂
