Painting Abstracts on The Ladies' Day Out

Hello, Everyone!  The beautiful abstract paintings you see in the images, below, were painted by the ladies you see holding the paintings in the last three images.  The ladies (doctors and lawyers, I think, and at least two are related to each other) were out for a day of activities together and were recommended to us by No Mas! CantinaWe appreciate No Mas! Cantina for that blessing and we've recommended them to others, too!

When the ladies arrived, we decided to paint our versions of an abstract painting that was on display in the Blu' Bisque.  The color-scheme of the original is painted with darker, wintery hues.  We chose brighter autumnal colors since we were in the midst of the Autumn season with its gorgeous palette of oranges, reds and yellows.  Of course, as you can see we added other lovely colors, too!  I photographed these images with the iPad while the ladies ate their lunch at No Mas!  They left them with us to dry while they ate, since they were too damp for transport. 

When the ladies returned to pick up their paintings, the 'You Don't Know Jack' pumpkin-painting themed class had begun.  The ladies returning from No Mas! met the ladies (mother & daughter) that you see working on their pumpkin paintings, along-side their painted and decorated fresh pumpkins, complimented their artwork and expressed their interest in doing this themed class, as well. 

Of course, those classes were in October 2014 and I enjoyed meeting those seven (7) ladies and teaching the two to paint pumpkins on canvas, and the five to paint an abstract on canvas.  All of them were so delightful and I'd love to paint with them again!














 


This is my version of the abstract painting.  Each of us painted our own interpretation of the original painting, and each version is uniquely beautiful!

were much less beautiful than the ONE who rules them all. The Creator of beauty itself created them.
