Cheers to another successful and delicious Cocktails & Canvases! This fun group gathered at my home Saturday, ready and open for a creative time. We were swaying, and singing along to the music and chatting while making our masterpieces. What a fun group! We're missing Angela here who painted a yellow lotus. Aren't they all such fun pieces? Focused moments are mixed with laughter! I help when needed but honestly, even people who think they can't even draw stick [...]
With only with 30 minutes to go before the first group of ladies arrived, Casey said "make sure to get rid of all the extra estrogen before I come back" (he spent the day at a distillery) and as on que, the Spice Girls started playing on the 90's Pop Spotify list and Katie-Beth and I broke out in dance.

I hosted another monthly Cocktails & Canvases this past Sunday. We had such a blast I totally forgot to take "in-progress" photos! Thanks to the Fall time change I got an extra hour in the morning and printed up a storm in my studio before getting everything ready for the students. Casey always helps me a little, making sure the kitchen and powder-room are in order. Casey headed to watch the Redskin's game and I started my Spotify [...]

The Spring Art Auction 2013 is coming towards the end, let's look back at some recent "Cocktails & Canvases". The May 4th Cocktails & Canvases went off without a hitch, accept a last minute cancellation. I'm always excited when we have a packed house but oh well - nothing we can do about that. You know I love the drink menu right? Well, I must have been craving summer because I added mojitos to this event. And though [...]

View the video above for a glimpse into what one of my Cocktails & Canvases painting events are like. Click here if the video isn't working above. Saturday's Cocktails & Canvases was so fun to host. We had a full group which started as a normal event but until mid-day Friday I decided to make the event FREE to everyone. Why? Well, the government shutdown is affecting everyone, but especially in and around the DC area where so many [...]
