My good friends Justin and Molly came over to paint today. Each of us had our own mission for the afternoon: Molly is painting a baby gift, Justin’s artwork will go to his brother, and I fixed up a old mirror. We sat around for hours telling goofy stories, painting and listening to music.
Working in a group is so motivating, like having a work out buddy. By making an event of this, we were able to set aside time just for art - something that normally falls to the bottom of our to-do lists. The exciting project ideas that we've had for weeks, or even months, finally became a priority today. I really look forward to getting together to do this again. There is a great energy that comes from doing what you love while surrounded by people that are also doing what they love!
