Painting by Numbers??

Not only did Mr. Miata have a birthday in July,
I did too!

For a birthday gift, Connor gave me a gift certificate
to The Corky Canvas for Maddy and me to do some painting
and he joined us!

Oh my word -- I thought it was paint by numbers
or fill in the lines!
No, it was more like a demonstration of 
how to do the painting and instructions to follow along!
We mixed colors, painted fancy swirls, dots and
filled the canvas with the most adorable little owl!

Obviously, some people are 
better at following directions and drawing
a straight or curvy line than others!

Bonus -- wine was served!!

It was such a fun afternoon!
We will definitely try to find our artsy side again!
