When I was 15 years old, I loved to paint. My mom bought me a few paint supplies and a couple of small canvases and I would sit in my bedroom for hours, painting. I painted clouds. I loved the way the clouds looked at sunset. They looked like flames in the sky. All sorts of brilliant oranges, reds, pinks, and purples. Somewhere along the way I realized I am not really that good at painting, even though I love it.

So yesterday a friend of mine told me about this place called Sips 'n Strokes. Most of these places are in Alabama, but there is one in East Cobb. You bring your favorite beverage and paint a picture. They show you step-by-step how to paint a beautiful masterpiece on a 16x20 canvas that you get to take home at the end of the night. You don't have to be an artist to do this! You can look here to see some of the photos on the site of some of the classes...

On their calendar they have a painting for each day, so you can choose which painting you want to do and go that day. My friend went last night and painted one called "Angel Face". She LOVED it!!! She is so excited about it! So she and I will be going on October 17th together to paint this...

Isn't it beautiful? So I will let you know how mine turns out! Most of you know that I am a huge Alabama football fan. They have a few Alabama football paintings coming up soon (like one of Bear Bryant!). I'm hoping that maybe my brother and sis-in-law might want to join me for that one!....


  1. How neat! Love the 'bama one; my bro in law would love that!

  2. We need to have a girls night out!

  3. Lisa, that is beautiful! I hope you are doing well. Think of you all the time!
