“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!
