Art Night at Studio Vino

First and foremost, let me just say I am not a painter.  I use paints in mixed media, collage and textile art, but I can't draw so this was going to be a challenge for me.

My friend Dee invited me to attend an evening at Studio Vino in Loveland.


Studio Vino is a "you paint it" type of entertainment.  And it IS entertaining.   It's led by an "Artertainer" that changes depending on the artwork.  It's geared to all levels of artists, even beginners.  You're taken step by step through the process to produce a finished piece of art.

Music, appetizers, a free glass of wine, all your supplies and a getting-to-know-you time before getting to work.

Then we were given our palette of paint, the colors of which were completely outside my comfort zone.  PRIMARY COLORS!?!  What in the world am I going to do with those?

This is the original piece:

And this is my feeble attempt at replication:

Despite my earlier apprehension, I ended up having a great time! 

Hugs to you all,
