An Artful Night

20130406-233306.jpgMy friend S had planned this night for many months and we finally made it. She gracefully hosted me and our dear friend L at her home for a night of painting.

This turned out to be a great night where we bonded deeper over art. S bought 3 small canvases and brushes for acrylic paint. She also had snacks and wine all ready for us. Even the vino had sisterhood in the name.

Our paintings were so different. Each seemed to reflect our individual journeys. Common theme was growth and hope forward.

Noooo, we did not just paint and talk art. We talked present and past relationships, glanced at the TV once in a while for March maddness – L is really into it. Clinked our glasses and planned an upcoming birthday for S.

I had not painted for a while. This certainly reignited my interest in painting, especially oil painting. Realized how much I miss it. Above all, this was such a meaningful way to spend time with friends.

These are the kind of nights where you truly get to know friends. Learn things you did not know about them. Feel blessed by their presence and having the opportunity to extend it back. Highly recommend this kind of exploratory, positive activity.

Got even more interesting when S read tarot cards for us. Never had that before; our cards were so spot on that it was a little scary.

Ladies here is to you!
Looking forward to our next artful night.
