"Sips N Strokes" with Mom

Mom and I headed to Sips 'N Strokes yesterday. I had the idea months ago to go for her birthday. We just got around to it this Tuesday. I've wanted to go for awhile now and always wondered why I didn't think of the idea myself. She picked the abstract flower painting (which is like telling me to paint with my toes). Yes. There was finger painting involved. Here are our materpieces!

As they say... "One man's trash is another man's treasure!"

This post is about a painting I had done in college for a class project. I got the idea from a picture I took at night with different camera settings. I had the painting on my blog slideshow when Allison saw it and wrote me asking all about it.

Funny thing was...I was not sure what happened to that painting. I was never fond of it and in the past I always toyed with the idea of throwing paintings away rather than moving them. To make a long story short, my mother unearthed it from my closet at home under a piles of old clothes and give away items. It will now find a home in Allison and Michael's new house. How exciting?! I touched it up tonight and, you know...it isn't that bad after all. I wonder what else I have hiding in closets...

And it's done...

I got to finish this tonight! I say "finished" but I never know when I am finished. I go back and touch up constantly till it either dries or I get rid of it. Now it has a month to dry! :) Not sure what to title it. I am going to start to think of that now...after I go to bed!
