We painted Henry Matisse’s “My Room at the Beau-Rivage” which was full of detail and impressionism, just the way we like it!
The more we paint the more freedom we feel to try our own thing, stop and laugh at the paint on our hands and arms, and taking our own breaks to snap pictures and just talk. I was having the worst pregnancy day I’ve had so far, and the lovely distraction of a class and my favorite guy cracking me up the whole time was just what I needed! Maybe that and the huge burrito he bought me before the class, that may have helped me feel better too!
Whatever the cause, we both walked out to the car holding our shiny new paintings and remarked how this date was just what we needed. And, once again, we reminded ourselves that it is still the best part of our week, still the thing we look forward to the most, and still the thing we’re always going to do no matter what stage of life we are in.
