Earlier this month, I signed up for a class at Young at Art that was different than others they had offered in the past. It was a party celebrating a local author and her first published book. One of my best friends and I decided to sign up and we had a great evening. We got to meet the author and get her new book autographed, paint a canvas inspired by the cover of the book and got to sample some yummy wine! It was a bit out of the ordinary for a weeknight but that is part of what made it so fun!
Here is my canvas at the beginning of the night. When I looked at the finished product I was a little worried about how I was going to get there but with great instruction and a glass of wine, it turned out not half bad!
I might have made a bit of a mess of myself.
I already read the book we got and will include that in my month wrap-up. I will say I didn’t love it. I feel a bit bad saying that but it’s true.
One of my favorite finds of the evening was the wine that I sampled. I am not a huge wine fan and don’t know a lot about it so I always feel a bit weird when put in a situation like wine tasting but the lady doing the serving was really quite laid back. I actually enjoyed the wine so much that I bought a bottle to bring home and it made a lovely addition to a steak dinner we had later that week.
All in all it was a fun night. A little uncomfortable at times, but fun. All day before the class, I was feeling like I didn’t want to go. There were all kinds of reasons I was thinking up about why I should stay home instead but I sucked it up and went. And I am glad I did!
