In November, I ventured out with friends to try a new craft type: painting. There is a shop in Griffin, Georgia called, Stache Studio, that let’s customers come in and paint a picture on canvas with acrylic paints. They also do ceramics and some other things, but I met two friends to try and paint a horse. The instructor was fantastic, and we had a wonderful time.
Of course, I know these ladies from the Calvin Center Equestrian Program, so we had loads to talk about and we laughed and laughed. The best thing about my barn friends is that we all enjoy each other so very, very much when we are able to match up schedules and get together for a bit!
So, here is the final product! I am impressed that they are all easily identifiable as horses, yet so different and unique to each of us. I am on the far left. I decided that my horse is a complete fantasy. Her name is Princess Buttercup. She is a haflinger. She stands 14 hands high, is strong as an ox, and, of course, loves me to pieces. A girl can dream, right?
Not too shabby if I do say so myself!
Have you ever taken a painting lesson? What did you create?
Till next time,

Hi Jan, thanks for sharing at the Art of Home-Making Mondays this week. As I was poking around I saw this post too. I think that is really neat that you tried a new craft like this and your horses all came out darling! Me and my daughter are also working on learning different things and it has been fun!
Thanks for stopping by, JES! It really was fun to step outside my comfort zone and try something totally new. Can’t wait to try something else new!
