painting lounge

Last month a friend of mine asked me to go to Painting Lounge with her. They offer different paintings each night and you basically you do a paint by numbers, without the numbers ;), for grown ups. To make it more fun you can bring your own beer or wine, liquid encouragement if you will. We thought we would be chatting throughout the class but ended up working in quiet concentration on our paintings. It was so much fun and I can't believe I was able to pull off a van Gogh in two and a half hours.

Happy hump day!

  4. That's so cool! Well done, shall we call you Nina van Gogh from now on? ;) You always find the coolest activities. I have to see if there is anything similar in Philly here. Where are you going to hang your masterpiece??

    1. Ha, ha Nina van Gogh...I have no idea where to hang the painting yet. It's sitting on the floor with a bunch of other frames that need to find a home around our house.

  5. This sounds (and looks!) like so much fun. And I can't believe you did that in such a short time either: impressive Nina.

  6. I've always heard about people going to these but have never gone before. Looks like so much fun! PS - These Van Goghs always remind me of the Van Gogh Doctor Who episode. He hates sunflowers but he paints them for his special lady friend :)

  7. Well, your painting came out really nice. Two and half hours? That's amazing. To me, the Painting Lounge sounds like the perfect way to spend an evening. I'm going to see if they have something similar in my area.
