Annette treated me to a fun painting night with Miranda.   She didn't tell me that this was a level 4 class,  so needless to say my painting showed that I wasn't ready for level 4.  We had fun and put our own slant on our piece of artwork.

Getting cell phone cameras ready.   What did we do before cell phones?
Probably a lot more

My sketched drawing before I added my unprofessional touches

Our colors

putting in the background and as you can see I painted over her shoe - but no

annette took out a leg and shoe but painted it back in

Miranda moving right along and managed to not take out any limbs in the process

I didn't get the whole picture - I need to start wearing my glasses.


Glasses next time
I wanna do it again - so much fun

Here is Mom and Annette.  So glad Annette got to see her while in town.


  1. Betsy, you are on your way to becoming a great artist! That is very obvious. Good job and must have been lots of fun..Happy Weekend..Judy

  2. This looks like such fun, Betsy! I would love to be able to do watercolors, and it looks like you all did a good job on yours. That's a sweet picture of your mom and sister; it's always fun to have a girls' night out. I could use one of those myself. ;)

    Have a wonderful weekend!!

  3. Looks like fun. I must attend one of these classes. Now you will have to show where you hang your piece. ♥

  4. Wow.. such a beautiful painting.. you enjoyed a lot..XO

  5. Oh how fun Betsy! Nice art work too! We have a place like that here in town and I have a gift certificate for it but have not went yet. Happy Sunday!

  6. i think they turned out is fun seeing the process!

  7. Awesome, my Talented Friend. I couldn't do that for the world --and wouldn't even attempt it... I never could even paint by number or color inside the lines..Just not my gift... Sounds like you all had so much fun.
