Here’s the scoop. A friend and myself went to a place called Pinot’s Palette. It’s a place where you can have parties for both adults and children. Birthday, Bachelorette, Holidays, great get together with friends, plus loads of fun. They even have corporate events.
It’s really a lot of fun!
Plus I learned something new. What an adventure!!!!
The day we went was to paint our pets. They were having a “pet project” where part of the money would be donated to a canine rescue place. You had to send a photo of your pet to them, they would create a template of your picture on a canvas, then you gave them what you wanted to do as your background, and the way you went. I have never, ever painted like this before. This was a new adventure for me and my friend.
Then the art instructor started giving and showing instructions on how to handle the brush, paints, etc.
Well to say the least my background was wild and bonkers of course. Here’s my picture
Well to say the least I thought poor Milo. What a background.
Now we had a chance to go back and correct our pictures and so we did. Here is the repainted picture
The paint we used was acrylic which I was able to paint over my bonkers background, plus updated some of his fur, etc. Thank goodness for that.
So what do you think? Thank goodness for the template on the canvas. I can’t even draw stick people.
Hi Everyone! Now this word I have heard a lot of lately. It seems like every program I watch has surreal in it. So what’s so terrific about this word? Have you ever had a surreal experience? Or a surreal dream? Not sure let’s scoop it out.
Surreal – characterized by fantastic imagery and incongruous juxtapositions; “a great concourse of phantasmagoria shadows”–J.C.Powys; “the incongruous imagery in surreal art and literature” Phantasmagoria – A constantly changing scene composed of numerous elements. Juxtapositions – to place close together or side by side
I find “surreal” being used in art, designer, makeup artist, best of all “special effects makeup artist”. Have you ever watched on Syfy.com a program Face Off? If you haven’t give it a try. Their designs are unbelievable. Season 12, episode 5 String Theory.
PS: Seniors aka Senior Citizens do your children or relatives ever ask you what you did today? Do they ever say – WHAT? Over the phone. Or if they are by you in person – do they just SHAKE their heads?
Well I found a couple of things that I consider abstract. Steampunk and Cosplay I like the best. Art is a little different. When I see a picture and I have to turn my head trying to figure out if they hung it correctly – that’s abstract to me.
Criticize – have you ever been a critic of movies, art, theater, fashion designs?
Have people agreed with you or have they “criticized” YOU?
Do you like being criticized?
When you criticize others do you do it with respect?
Do you criticize them to the point of embarrassment?
Have you ever been embarrassed when someone pulled you aside, yelled, screamed at the horrible comments you made about their work?
There is a technique to how you criticize someone. It’s called finesse. Finesse makes all the difference in the world to people. Finesse is an art. It takes time, patience, resourcefulness, savvy and shrewdness. This is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to finesse.
