“Fabulous Flowering

The Earth Laughs in Flowers

I am so inspired by all the lovely flowers and trees out in bloom right now…the colors are so beautiful; so this coming Saturday at this month’s Wine, Women and a Paintbrush, we will be “flowering up a storm!”
Coloring books for adults are all the rage these days.  You can find them in almost every store.  It’s no surprise to me since the act of playing with color and crayons is a very calming and satisfying activity.  The trick is allowing yourself the indulgence of sitting still long enough to enjoy it!  Here’s your chance to jump in and grab a moment to create a coloring book masterpiece of your own design.  I will show you how I draw all kinds of flowers and  use them to create a gorgeous little sign for the garden or home.
Join us this month as we enjoy a playful exploration of all kinds of drawing and coloring tools.  We will draw, doodle and color,…and sip and snack and chat and giggle…don’t miss it!

“The Art of Allowing

AllowI find life so interesting and in particular the way we all choose to move through our experiences.  I notice for myself that I struggle the most when I am in resistance about something, yet I also know how marvelous things work out when I am in a state of flow, ALLOWING what IS to just be.
So, at this month’s Wine, Women and a Paintbrush, we will play with this idea of “Allowing”…in art and in life!

 

Watercolor is a perfect medium to experiment with the idea of Allowing.  And there are so many water-soluable pens, pencils and crayons out now too that are really cool and fun to play with!  With “wet-in-wet” techniques we will learn how to let go and let the paint surprise us with color and texture…and then we will work with and respond to what is happening on the paper in the moment.    Whether you create a card for giving, or a page in a sketchbook, this process can be applied to a number of projects.  It’s also wonderful to carry with you as a portable art project you can easily have with you when traveling.  I will share a number of tips and ideas for introducing or continuing a regular practice of keeping a sketchbook that are easy, inspiring and that do not take a ton of time….so you can fit a little bit of creative bliss into your regular schedule.   You will come away with at least one finished piece you can hang or give away or mount in a sketchbook.

Join us this month as we enjoy a playful exploration of all kinds of water-media and drawing and sketching tools.  We will sketch, paint and play with color,…and sip and snack and chat and giggle…don’t miss it!
