After a million revisions, Paint Night was relocated and whittled down to a tight group of 4 ladies. This was not the original plan, but it ended up working perfectly for a simple test run. If we are defining success by delicious food, wet whistles, and attendees who had a great time and left happy with their final product, then in spite of a sudden downpour, Paint Night was a definitely success!
Downpour? Yes, we had a very unexpected 20 minutes downpour midway through the event (as well as all day Saturday...), so these photos are actually a compilation of 3 different days of documentation. We all had to scramble to bring everything inside: the table full of paints, the food table, the rug for chilling, and of course all the easels with their canvasses. The rain failed to dampen our spirits and we continued on drinking + painting in the middle of my living room! Snacks and dessert was served just before Kevin arrived home. He was probably expecting/hoping to return to a quiet home, however, he was instead accosted by a room of roaring ladies forcing him to play "guess whose painting is whose" followed by a critique of each piece. Best.
Alright, enough chatting, onto the photos...
Mega thanks to Kevin for the insane amount of work he did throughout the week helping to prepare everything from designing + building easels to slaving in the kitchen making all the delicious food and sangria for our lovely guests. Big hugs to my buddy Dave for helping me to streamline my ideas and keep my mind focus while accompanying me on the grocery run!
Stay Tuned for PAINT NIGHT No.2 coming this July! Date to be announced!
