Turtles and Tequila

I’ve been working so much on writing, but of course my inner visual artist is never truly dormant. So I jumped at the chance to do a little painting…and a little drinking…with friends.  We all worked from the same sample image (to the left of my head in my standing portrait below) and were given some minimal instruction from a teacher. Part of the fun was seeing all the different interpretations of the same thing. These painting and cocktail events are common in our area, and I love to try my hand at tipsy painting occasionally. This one served up excellent jalapeno margaritas and a painting that reminded me of the Hawaiian turtles from my vacation last year. Such fun!

    • I’ve done this three times, and I’m always amazed how differently everyone paints the same thing. Repeating it with a same friend, I see her interpretation pattern as well as my own. I paint wispier than most and she paints in more solid color blocks than most of the class. Interesting…


  2. Wow, how nice. And I can see many beautiful turtles! Painting with some booz? Why not? 🙂

    That’s so cool! I haven’t been able to get in on any of these sessions around here — I find out too late or it’s the wrong day. I did it once in Chicago and once in Portland, though, and it was great fun! I did the painting of Gizmo in Portland at a special paint your pet night. Each person worked from a photo.
