I’m starting a new adventure and it includes you! Well, if you want to anyway!
This weekend will be my first class in teaching people how to paint. We will be starting off with Van Gogh’s “Starry Night.”
It will be held in the Flying Fish Gallery, but I am planning more classes in the immediate future. My class filled up in less than a few days. I am planning a nice little menu of Hors D’ouvres. Not to be missed! Not to mention my super snarky wit and humor…ok well, the dip is good.
Here is a list of what will be served, so please pair your wine accordingly.
Sat, June 4th Apps Menu
cabbage wrapped shrimp with a mango pineapple chutney
tomato and mozzarella cheese salad with fresh basil
fresh veggies from the garden with a fresh dill dip
assorted olives and olives stuffed with blue cheese and a blue cheese crumble with crackers
assorted cheese tray with grapes
Passionfruit Punch with a mint and lemon garnis
You may have missed this class, but please check my web page for more available dates.
I will be adding more shortly!
It was a beautiful and cool weekend filled with classic cars, amazing artwork and fun. I got to see the new schoolhouse that was moved to Ben Wheeler from Emory. They did an amazing job refurbishing that place! Unfortunately I forgot to take pics of it, but I did get to take full advantage of the upstart car show going on at the same time as the artisan show. I didn’t get many pictures but here are the ones I did get!
I just finished this painting last night. The man who owns this car refurbished it in a way that preserved the beautiful patina the rust left on the car. He sanded it smooth, just the way it was, so that the paint and rust were level and the he matte clear coated it. After that he pinstriped it and gave it it’s name “Ratrod.” It was love at first sight, from it’s gleaming cherry rims to it’s custom non-paint job. Coolness encapsulated on 4 wheels.
This will be on display at the Flying Fish gallery and I will also be listing it on my website and Etsy.
