Painting With a Twist

Thanks, everyone for all the birthday wishes! I had a great weekend and got lots of great presents.  Friday night my best friend had a special activity planned….we went to a new place called “Painting With a Twist”.  You may also know it as Corks and Canvases or Cocktails and Canvases.  This place has only been open for a week or two in my town, and I didn’t even realize it existed, so it was a great surprise!

Here is the painting we were going to create:

And here’s how mine turned out:

So we started out with a blank canvas and of course our bottle of wine:

canvas The instructor guided us through the process.  There was fun music playing in the background and wine, beer, and soft drinks available for purchase.  Some people even brought snacks like cheese, apple slices, and brownies.IMG_0319  IMG_0323

At this point, it’s a good idea NOT to drop your cell phone in the paint!

Making progress…. IMG_0324 IMG_0326 IMG_0327 

And here we are with our finished paintings:

It was a really cool experience, if there is something like this where you live, I highly recommend it! I plan on going again with my mom.  It was so neat to see how everyone’s paintings turned out a little differently.  And the best part is, a few hours and a bottle of wine later, you end up with your very own artwork to display proudly!

  3. Christy, What fun...living in the country doesn't give us access to such fun places and to have to dirve to Houston or Dallas. 100+ miles one way, takes away all the fun. I am glad you had a great birthday.

  7. That's a neat idea! Your painting turned out great! I would imagine everyone's paintings could look different depending on how much wine you had! ; )

  8. Your painting turned out well. That is a great idea for a night out with the girls. I haven't seen anything like that here but I may need to search more. We have a paint your own pottery place that is fun for a group. They do birthday parties and any group. But a painting would be fun to bring home!

  15. You did a great job on the painting! It looks almost the same with the painting you are supposed to paint but you add a little personal touch to it! I am wondering what happened to your cellphone.

  16. I am so awful. Happy Belated Birthday!

    Like your painting and the whole activity looks like fun. I would much rather do a painting than pottery!

  17. Canvas painting terrifies me and I don't know why! I can paint ceilings 20 feet in the air, but am terrified by canvas!!!!!

    Great job on that! What a fun deal!

    Stop by my painting blog and say hello sometime!

  18. Where are you going to display your artwork in your home? Or is it a gift?

    Great to see a new idea!

  19. What a fun thing to do. I love it! Dropping your cell in the paint sounds like something I would do...although it's been dropped in much worse unfortuneately! Happy Belated BDay!
