Crystal gave Ed and me a Paint Nite gift for Christmas. We had our excursion last night at Famous Dave's in Owings Mills. We started with dinner and were ready to paint at 7 o'clock.
By 8 we had finished the background and had a little break while we waited for it to dry. It was fun working with acrylics. We mixed all our colors and added a little water. Every painting was slightly different.
I was surprised to find that even I, who am not artistically inclined, can paint a tree when it is explained to me.
Ed, being the more advanced artist, was able to add a little red cardinal on the middle tree. My bird had major problems and had to be excised from the painting.
To make our snow paintings even more magical, we drove home in a light snow, our first of the season!
We'll enjoy looking at our pictures on the bar as the snow picks up tomorrow night. We're expecting 1-2 feet of snow Friday night into Saturday. Painting a peaceful snow scene was a good way to get into the mood for it!
