Take a Painting Class


“Sippin and Painting”

One of the goals Lyssa had for me was to take a painting course.  When Lyssa first told me about this I was scared to death.  I’m serious folks..scared to death.  I hate art.  I can not stand it.  It’s probably because I don’t understand it, but nonetheless, I hate it.

Thank you, Living Social for having a painting course in DC entitled “Sippin and Painting.”  They provide wine while you paint!  Okay, so that doesn’t sound that bad.  I decided to do it.

First off, the Living Social building is amazing.  It’s an older building which has been redone inside to look beautiful.  I walk in and go into the room and begin to cringe.  There’s nothing but paint, easels, paint brushes, and paintings around me.  Imagine a vampire seeing the sun…that was me.

They start off by giving you a wine bottle (about half the size of a regular bottle).  Needless to say I was very happy about that. My task was to paint a flower.  I couldn’t paint a stick figure if you’d asked me to.  The one thing the instructor said that I listened to more than anything else was when she said,  “Right when you want to scribble out everything…drink more wine.”  Amen sister. Amen.

I can’t believe I’m typing this but I had a lot of fun doing this.  This is the reason why Lyssa and I push each other on different goals.  She knows I don’t like art, yet she pushed me anyway.  I had a good time and I’d like to do it again.  I think Lyssa humored me, but we hung the painting up in our house.  Success!


Lyssa’s Goal #1 for me:  Completed!
