No WINE!… I’ll paint anyway!

I posted on a painting I did with others at

I went to another class with “Wine and Canvas” last night…

Doesn’t compare… sorry to say…

The people were very nice no problem there..

The surroundings were OK

It was held at Mimi’s Cafe here in Louisville

This group holds classes at different restaurants in the area… on different dates

Faults I found…

Crowded

No wine or snacks as their name indicates…BUMMER!… you could order and pay for your own…

They didn’t provide all colors of paint… Only the colors of the painting that the instructor had chosen…

I came to paint an Eiffel Tower for my bathroom…pinks…gray…black…

No red…or pink to be had… Only black, blue, green, white and yellow…

See why I was disappointed??? …Both my friend and I needed the pink or at least some red/white to make our own pink… to finish our painting…

So… I finished it at home this morning… and she is doing the same…

As I said …It’s a great idea… and holding it at restaurants is OK too… but, not what I expected!…

I love to paint and being with my friend I used to work with was great!…

I also had gotten a coupon off of the internet for 1/2 off … So instead of $70 for the two of us… it was $35 for us… and sharing that… made it $17.50 each…

That should have nothing to do with the wrongs I found… They had done the advertising and deal…

So… it helps to check out these things…

Young girl named Beverly sat next to me… I thought she did a great job!

We had a great time anyway… Nothing can keep us from that!

We had to turn our paintings upside-down to paint bottom edge…

  1. Thanks for a wonderful and fun evening. I’m still waiting for my glass of wine. (Ha Ha) This was such a great experience because I haven’t painted on canvas for about 25 years. I generally sketch on canvas and work flat. Gee, I’m so mechanical about painting. Go figure!!! Let’s plan another outing again real soon. I’ll send you a picture when my painting is done. Just love the Eiffel Tower…. Happy painting. Love & hugs, Andrea

  2. What a fun evening! Love your work! I agree, sounds like the organizers should have lived up to the name of the event. We used to eat at Mimi’s when we lived in Denver…love their muffins, their 5 way grilled cheese…and pretty much everything I tried there. Thanks for sharing! ~ Sheila

  3. I have not done a painting class like that before. I love the idea, but I don’t like how similar each person’s painting looks. Thats less interesting to me. I have seen similar Groupon deals near me (in Ohio) and have been tempted to buy them! I cannot afford full price for something thats “just for fun” especially when I can paint everything at home for less! haha Someday…!

    I like yours with the pinks!

    • I beat to a different drum too…so both of the classes I’ve gone to …mine looked different from others…but, the instructors seem to be OK with that…it is fun!…just going with friends …have another planned soon…and it’s also a different place…
