G'Nosh-ing Again

I went to another art class at G'Nosh in Richardson. Love that place! This was my fourth class. I took my sister for her birthday, and we painted the Crazy Tree of Love.

I took my camera, but the battery was dead upon arrival. So I didn't get anything but the finished product once I got home. This was by far my favorite painting that I have done there!


Even if you don't have any painting experience (I had never done a painting before my first class) they walk you step by step through the whole process. Everyone ends up with a masterpiece to take home at the end of the night!


I love learning that something that might look complicated isn't that difficult to produce at all. Take the two love birds for instance...all they are is a fingerprint (literally!) of black paint for the bodies, a little round circle on top for the heads, a swipe of white for a beak, and a few brush strokes for the tail feathers.

And I had a little model who really wanted in the picture, so here is Seth with my "Crazy Tree of Love"...

Courtney, that is such a cool picture! I want to do that! I've always wanted to know how to paint, but have NO idea what to do. What a great idea to have a studio to teach people! I really love the finished piece. Nice job!

I'm impressed. What a fun thing to do! I bet you guys had a great time together. And that picture of Seth is too much. He is so stinkin' handsome.
Can't wait to see you soon!
