Painting Poppies

Poppies are beautiful flowers, but in our area......they just don't grow very well.  I remember a trip that Sam and I made to Colorado one year.....   Oh my goodness, the little mountain town of Ouary was decorated all around with the most gorgeous red poppies.   Each flower was so delicate looking and full of rich color.

Last night, several of our ladies from the church, gathered at Pinot's Palette in Tyler for a little painting and good fellowship.

I love all of these ladies.....they are the Best!!  Check it out.....I have a few years on all of them, but I am Blessed, because this crew always includes me in everything!!  

I try my best not to boss them!!!  Lol.

Actually.....I'm the life of the PARTY!!!!  (You know I'm laughing right now)

I am a person who needs light!!  Lots of light....
This painting was a challenge for me because I found it difficult to use the dark, almost deep turquoise, color of green.   For this reason, I ventured off on my own a little and therefore, my painting is a little different from most of the others...

This is the way the table is set up and each person has everything they need, right there in front of them...   There is a person up on the stage that is showing us the steps that are needed to complete this painting...

Loads of fun with friends.....

Sorry......just a little blurry!!

Friends are like Honey in this sweet journey that we call life!!

Hugs Y'all...

I would just LOVE something like this!!! And they ALL looks so good!! I am like you Shug, I have to have lots of light, We have two 150 bulbs in the living room and it is not enough. I HAVE to open wide all the drapes when I get up first thing. EXCEPT this week, it is over 90 all week! Wouldn't it be fun to put all the poppy pictures together, then make wallpaper from it!!! We have such awesome poppies you would not believe!!! I adore them!!!! Really my favorite flower to snap, especially the double petaled ones.

Looks like a lot of fun and its probably the only way I could ever paint something. There are a couple of places that hosts parties in Monroe like that. Blessings!

We have a place here just like this!

Your painting looks beautiful.

It amazes me how some people can just pick up a brush and paint stuff! I've tried, and decided it isn't my talent. I envy the fun you must have had. Your are blessed with a lovely family, and so blessed to have them close.
