2nd Painting Class


Posted on Mar 13, 2008

Tuesday was my second and last painting class.  This week’s class was so great!  We all drew this vase with flowers.  The first major difference was that we got to trace the image onto the canvas.  This saved me lots of headache since I don’t know the first thing about drawing and perspective is something I’m still trying to understand.  Having a rough idea of where things were going to be...

I went to Powell’s on Hawthorne looking for a drawing book for a dear little friend of mine.  She loves fairies and I did find one fairy activity/drawing book for her.  But then I saw this book.  I instantly had flashbacks to childhood.  I had owned and loved this book.  So of course, I had to get it for her.  It is such a great book for easy to learn step by step drawings.  If you click on the...

On Tuesday I started a two week acrylic painting class with my sister.  The class was held at my sister’s church and costs only 10 dollars with supplies included.  So really there is no way you can beat that deal.  I have always wanted to take a class in acrylics.  I paint with them frequently, but don’t really have a clue as to what I’m doing.  This class was a little frustrating to me...

Last night over Portland, OR there was a Lunar Eclipse at about 7pm.  I was driving while it was starting to eclipse which was fun to see.  People were taking pictures from their cars and lots of people were on the side of the road taking pictures.  I got home right as it was eclipsing and took these pictures.  Such a cool event.  We won’t see another eclipse for many...

Chocolate and Wine Class

Really, could you ask for anything more?  For my mom’s birthday this year, my sister and I enrolled all three of us in this Chocolate and Wine class at Urban Wineworks.  In the class we made chocolates (see above) using molds and love potions while sampling 3 different wines from Bishop Creek (the vineyard that owns Urban Wineworks.  The man running the chocolate portion of the class is the owner of Kekau in...
