Mel selected an abstract theme and after a few cocktails, we set to work. We had an amazing teacher guiding us, Noelle Stoffel (who also happens to be a real life acquaintance as well since our kiddos go to school together.)
Here's how mine turned out. It's currently doing the lean on our bookshelf (with some other masterpieces) until I can figure out a permanent home.
I'm rather impressed with myself! It's really amazing that with a brush change or use of a fancy tool, the outcome of your piece changes. Thanks to Noelle for helping me with that coral-colored "blob" in the middle, which is my favorite part.
After the painting, I wandered around the gallery and checked out Noelle's work. I would like one of each please.
|Into The Deep, Noelle Stoffel|
|Trinity, Noelle Stoffel|
|Heartfelt, Noelle Stoffel|
|The Way We Were, Noelle Stoffel|
Noelle's work can be seen on her website, in person at Artichokes and also at Room 39 (delicious if you haven't been, btw.)
