A Evening Fundraiser!

This past week my friend, Mary coordinated a fundraising event for 5K for 5Charities at the Social Canvas.  This event received a portion of our fee that gets divided amongst 5 local charities.  It was SO MUCH FUN!  You should have heard the ladies rocking out to Bon Jovi's You Give Love a Bad Name!  

Upon arrival the instructor and I decided we knew each other but for the life of us neither one could figure out from where.  We had a good laugh when about 3/4 of the way through the event she figured out that she used to the work at the coffee shop I frequent.

I used my panoramic mode to get the entire inside of the facility.
When you arrive you don an apron, fill up your cardboard pallet with the paints and select a work station already set up with your canvas and brushes.  You mix your colors on the paper covering the table throughout the evening.  You get to know your neighbor as there is not much space between stations. 

Here I am creating the first layer of my "masterpiece".

What I love about this class is even though we are painting the same piece - not one of them looks the same.  Belinda's is on the left, mine is in the middle and Mary's is on the right.

Second layer on and again our trees looking nothing alike.  Belinda left, mine center, Mary right.

Finished pieces and again nothing alike.  Belinda left, mine middle, Mary right.

If you take a good look at mine, there is one circle with a heart in it, as Keith already had claimed this for his before I left the house.  I also think there is a huge monster hovering in the background as it appears there are eyes staring out at you midway down the painting.

Here we all our on stage together for our class photo.  Belinda left, Mary middle, me right.

Here is Keith admiring his new art acquisition.  I feel very loved and appreciated!
