The Beach Scene Painting #1

The other night I had trouble figuring out what to paint and ended up trying to recreate the first beach scene I had painted with Painting With a Twist. This weekend the weather is calling for some storms and rain all weekend… so as I was reading a book I had bought on Amazon around…

The Night of Misc. Paintings

Having ‘Painters block’ where you can’t decide what to paint sucks.  There are so many options, but as you are trying to learn the techniques and really don’t feel like reading, you come to a road block… or at least I did tonight. Over the weekend I tried to follow along with a video on…

First Bob Ross Painting

While growing up, we didn’t have cable… we had basic TV and Gumby was one of my favorite shows… as well as watching Bob Ross paint.  Even though I don’t remember all of the details, watching the painting come to life was pretty amazing.  As you are painting, listening to music is nice – however,…

Bundle of Flowers!

I live in the city, within a suburb, and they send the residents a catalog of different events and activities going on during certain times during the year.  This last one I had received had sunflowers with a green faded background behind it.  Needless to say, it was an inspiration for this next painting.  Using…

Spring Flower Painting!

As I currently live in the city, and after the beach painting had been done, I decided to see where the other Painting With a Twist locations were at.  About a 5 minute walk from my place, there was one I had found that just opened late 2016.  After talking with some friends, we decided…

The Beach Painting

Since the wine walk painting of the atrocious wine glass that I ended up trashing in the end, I took a few years off from that activity. A group of really good friends and I decided to schedule a girls night out at Painting With a Twist nearby.  All I could think about was hoping…

The Wine Glass Painting

My sister and I went on a wine walk in Waukegan August 2015.  Towards the end of the walk, there was an opportunity to paint and drink.  Since we had been on this walk for what seemed like hours already, we decided to join in… and luckily they hadn’t gotten too far. Kristen’s painting is…

Fun with the Family!

This was not a drinking event – at my house in Illinois (same year, 2015) there was a girls night where my niece came over.  We had our own ‘colorfest’ by chasing each other in the yard, throwing powdered paint at each other… As you can see, we had a BLAST! The night was then…

First Time Painting

A lot happened in 2015 and one of the experiences I had was going to a paint and drink event with my best friend.  This took place at a winery and I had no idea what to expect other than drink wine. This is my best friend and me before the painting started.  Once it…
