Happy Friday! Today is especially happy because it's a 3-day holiday weekend with cook outs, early morning fishing trips, conversations with friends over good food and good wine, something new we're calling 'wine slushies', watering the new grass and walking over its dewy softness in our bare feet.... ah, so many things to make the heart glad. (Speaking of happiness, I just picked up The Happiness Project and predict that it'll be a life changer; I've only read the first chapter but I'm hooked. More on that later.)
Tonight it will be grilled steak, charro beans, yummy guacamole and wine slushies but every other Friday we're still enjoying the most fabulous art nights. I wanted to give you a little update and a peek into the fun we've been having to inspire your weekend plans.
Meet cousins Melissa & Ashley. On this night--Melissa's first--they decided on a collaborative painting. So many beautiful things to gaze upon.
On art night, you will find plenty of...lovely blended backgrounds,
...and mysterious visitors.
Lydia and I met at our favorite local brew pub. She wowed us with 2 amazing canvases and a stack of spray painted papers all in the same night!
I showed her a few things with stencils and spray cans and she took off on her own. I hope she framed some of these--so gorgeous!
Whatever plans you have for this holiday weekend, I hope it includes lots of art, good friends, and big belly laughter. If you're now dying to make your own spray painted masterpieces, its not to late to join me in Playing With Pattern over at 21 Secrets. You can have your very own art night adventure too so, check it out here and I guarantee you a whirlwind artful weekend!
