Ready to Paint This Town….
If you’ve visited Peachfully Chic before, you know that I love a great #GNO and am always down for a fun creative session. So it was a blast to take three of my favorite ladies with me on a fun Paint Nite excusion a couple weeks ago.
We opted in for the Paris Skyline painting which was hosted at Social Vinings (super close to my house!) because we thought it might be easier to go abstract than to be precise on a very detailed scene. I was wrong. My type-A personality kicked in and it pretty tough for me to just let the paint brush fly and relax. Luckily our Paint Nite landed on a Monday at Social Vinings which meant half off bottles of wine… so that helped 😉
If you’re interested in Paint Nite, the great thing is that you don’t have to be a pro… nor do you have to have any painting experience at all. Their calendar is set up that you can find a Paint Nite in your area almost any night of the week, and their instructors give you plenty of time during each step of the process just incase you
mess up need a little more time.
And did I mention this is an international program? Well it is…. so you can plan a Paint Nite during your next trip across the states, across the border, or across the world. Guess I know what to look for next time I’m in New York feeling inspired by the Whitney!
In the end, I think I could have been a little more free-flowing with my brush strokes, but I think considering I haven’t picked up a paint brush in the last few years, I’m pretty happy just to have been in there having a glass of wine, and being creative with a great group of friends!
You can actually follow along with Paint Nite on their instagram or twitter accounts and check out #PAINTNITE for a slew of other photos on social!
