A few days ago, I found out about a place called, Paintlounge.
After seeing their website, I was too attracted to justify not going (after all, there is barely enough time for a shower as a mom, let alone paint). It's social painting with a little cafe on the side (a similar idea my husband and I talked about years ago). I'm so glad I went because I realized how much I missed painting and making art in general. I also came up with a little painting to give to my daughter. So long to those university days of depressing, social issue paintings and art. Hello to my new mommy series of happy, cutesy paintings. I'm hoping to eventually set up my own home art studio...we'll see.
Speaking of arting and kids, I came upon a neat installation with the "I wish I came up with it" feeling.
A blank room.
Thousands of stickers.
The Obliteration Room by Yayoi Kusama. You can read about it here.
Maybe I should use that idea for my little girl :D
