Last February, I attended my first “Wine and Canvas” event. Never heard of it? Basically, Art Uncorked puts on these gatherings in different restaurants and bars in the Bay Area where you can drink and be merry all whilst learning how to paint an iconic painting. (Sounds kinda cool, right?) Each session is three-and-a-half hours, which I thought to be ample time to create an acrylic painting. How hard could it be? Uhhhhh, actually super hard. My friend, Stefanie, and I found ourselves still at Pause: Wine Bar many minutes past our deadline. I remember very vividly that both of us started to sweat from the pressure of trying to finish. It was hilarious because I was so baffled at what I had done in an all-of-a-sudden measly three (and some change) hours. It was pathetic, especially because I wasn’t really distracted either. At the end of the night, the coordinator took pictures of each masterpiece, for lack of a better term.
Here’s a pic of the goods:
