Last night I went to a painting party at The Loaded Brush with some friends and family members. We had bought a Groupon several months ago, but it took us quite some time to get a time where we could all go...we were a sizable group and the calendar of classes fills up quickly. Unfortunately, two of our members were unable to attend.
First we had dinner at Stickers Asian Cafe, which I highly recommend for its tasty, reasonably priced food. Yum!
Then we drove off the Loaded Brush. The owner/teacher, Aaron, led us through painting Starry Night by Vincent Van Gogh, step by step. He's developed a process and technique that can turn painters into those of us who have never or rarely picked up a brush before. It was really fun.

|April's and my paintings|
|Lois had her painting framed (not bad for a computer sciences professor)|
|My final result--I was happier with it in the morning!|
|Our group--it was fascinating to see how each person's was slightly different!|
