Pass The Wine And Cheese!

At the lake, several of our friends gather at 5 o’clock for Happy Hour.  It really is a chance to talk and get caught up with everyone and share some laughter.  Everyone brings a snack to share and what they want to drink.  Some people just drink water but my hubby and I usually pour ourselves a glass of wine.  White or red – we like them both!  🙂

I created this in my art journal this summer.  It is a blind contour drawing (my eyes were closed and no I didn’t peak!)  After I drew it, I splashed on some watercolors – and yes, my eyes were open for this part.  😉

I like how the soft colors blend, don’t you?   Kind of like a winemaker blending his grapes together to create a varietal of wine…

I’d like to create this painting on a larger piece of watercolor paper and frame it.

Speaking of framing – do you cut your own mat board for your artwork?  I purchased a couple of mats today with the intention of matting some of my art but the mat opening didn’t fit properly.   Any ideas?!

Cheers Friends!  🙂
