Today was such a great day for "an art date" with a bunch of fun, artistic girl friends. First of all it had been an early spring here in Boise and we were all marveling over the warm temps and budding trees and flowers, then this morning we woke up to snow! So it was a great day to stay inside and create.
Well, Marianne (click to see her photos and blog) invited us all over for a day of art, she generously shared all of her wonderful art supplies, books and techniques and we learned from each other.
We were each to bring a "substrate" something to start the piece on and then we would each have an hour to work on each others piece and pass it around. We had a lot of laughs, a lot of sharing of ideas and a lot of the "F" word which actually wound up on the back of my piece after we had been through a couple of bottles of wine and some great hour-devours!
A few of the men came out of the woodwork by the end of the day when we broke out the steaming pot of chili and Pineapple cake to top off the days work.
Some of the pieces may wind up in the silent auction at We Art Women-April 8th at the VAC and look for the ATC's around town as we get ready for our Modern Art Show at the "Modern Hotel" on May 6th.
