ART OF MY SOUL DAY 1: 31at31 SIP AND STROKE

Day 1: 31at31 Sip and Stroke


What do you get when you combine Pinot and Picasso? Monet and Merlot?  Riesling and Rembrandt?  Why, a masterpiece of course!  Masterpieces were in abundance this past Friday at the Sip and Stroke


Creative Hands
We started the evening with a wide range of fine wines from Pinot, Syrah, Riesling, Sweet Bitch Merlot (a crowd favorite), Cabaret Sauvignon, and Moscato.  They were all very delicious.  My favorites were all of the sweet and fruity ones!


After mingling and perusing art books for inspiration we moved into the painting studio where canvasses, brushes and paint were ready for us to create.


Our artist of the evening was Shurvon Haynes, a local mixed media artist from Seattle.  She led us in an abstract piece initiated with a reading from author bell hooks. 


I was deeply moved by the entire experience.  I started out just blending colors with no particular image in mind.  The funny thing is, is that I didn't see an image emerge until a fellow artist threw down her paintbrush in a dramatic gesture of completion.  The brush soaked in bright yellow and blue landed smack dab in the corner of my masterpiece!  I screamed!  Luckily, I was able to fix it and actually, it made my painting even better!


My first piece entitled, "One Essence."  If you look
closely you can see both a man and a woman.
I am totally in love with my piece!  I love the blended colors and find it to be very inspiring to gaze upon.  Because of this painting, I am moved to paint more.  Starting at least once a week I will paint with another artist friend of mine and see what magic appears on canvas.  The 31at31 Sip and Stroke, truly was the best way to kick off, The Art of My Soul! Have you ever considered painting?  What colors inspire you to create?  Have you ever painted in a group with other artists?  Would you ever sell your work?  Don't be surprised if you hear about me having an art opening showcasing all of the pieces I create this summer!
