Cherry Blossom Paint Party - June 2019

The Guild takes the months of June and July off since people travel, the work in their studio and me time .  However, Denita Whitehead of Pearlized Designs, hosts paint parties for adults and children, and we thought it would be fun to have our own paint party.  So we did. 

Denita showed us many different ideas for a paint party - seasonal themes, Harry Potter, Vegas Golden Knights and more.  We voted on the Cherry Blossom painting which represents Spring in her seasonal collection.

Our go to place was Findlay Chevrolet.  We did a pot luck and Denita supplied Everything!
From aprons, easels and of course, paint and patience.  A fun evening.  Very interesting how everyone had their own "style".  Sharing the pics of a great time.   Thank you, Denita!

Now we are ready for palette knife painting and acrylic pour classes!
