WELCOME TO THE DOODLE SPOT –
An experience more so than a traditional “spot” is pawbably the better way to describe my evening with Wine & Design. #groovyhiddentreasure
It was an unusual and refreshing way to spend a few hours unleashing #punintended my creative side…
All is Well Pet – the holistic pet store I’ve fallen in love with invited me to a “Paint Your Pet” class.
Sounded like fun!
Why not? #bucketlist
Having never done anything like this before I was both excited and apprehensive.
Excited – because I’ve heard so much about these classes in the many places I’ve lived. I never dreamed of going to one but they had me when they said “paint your pet!”
Apprehensive – because girlfriend can’t paint! #challenged
All I had to do was –
Sign up, Show up, Sip up and PAINT!
- Pay $35.00 to register #nottoobad
- Email a photo of the Boys
- They provided the canvas, paint, brushes, aprons and music. #getjiggywithit
- When I arrived, I grabbed my smock, canvas and photos of the Boys. #easypeasy
As soon as I sat down, Tyler our instructor came over.
After he introduced himself he told me I had the most difficult canvas to paint because Harley & Jaxson are both white! #wonderful …
He promised to help me with shading, creating the illusions of curls and contrast but I still had doubt. #Jesustakethewheel
As I sat there – paintbrush in hand, tapping my toes to the Motown sounds – the people at my table were no longer strangers.
We were all painting and talking about a common interest near and dear to our hearts – our four legged babies…
The two hours flew by – laughter, music and constant encouragement filled the air. #couldhavebeenthewine
Look at some of the pawsome talent…
I finally finished my Pablo Doodlecasso with about 15 minutes to spare!
WHAT DO YOU THINK? –
Many people there that night were veterans. They’d done this sort of thing before…
Would I go again? Absodoodletutely!
But when I do – I will definitely bring a friend. I went alone #Doodledaddontpaint
While the other artists were cordial – they were either paired up or came in groups of three. There’s no substitute for having your own “ride or die” buddy with you.
Whether you’re living in Charleston or somewhere else – if you haven’t tried to get your “art buzz on” you might want to grab a friend and give that ole paintbrush a twirl. #strokeit
They have locations in more than 15 states with multiple studios in many locales.
As I walked into the house I held my masterpiece with pride.
I GOT RAVE REVIEWS –
- Lee smiled and made some neanderthal grunt of approval like men do #lovethemanyway
- Harley tried to scratch his own face
- Jax licked it
In my house those are positive signs of approval!
I love it, because I love anything “Doodle” Golden that is, especially the “Groovy” ones…
Thanks so much for reading – have a Doodle*tastic day ❤️
