The lady next to me was very cubist. It really was eye opening how the same picture and the same instructions could be so wildly interpreted. The 5 hours went by so quickly.

Then when I left it was snowing and at the same time the sun was shining! Brrr [emoji3063] itís so cold today. Subzero temperatures windchill. Iím now in my chair under a blanket with a poncho my daughter gave me, drinking hot chocolate. Brrr [emoji3063]

Itís nice being old, I donít worry about things the way I used to. Even ten years ago I would have worried how bad my art was instead of just enjoying it and marveling on the different interpretations. I would have been constantly comparing and finding myself wanting. And feeling insecure and intimidated. Instead I enjoyed myself and chatted with those nearest me.

Glad you went and had a good time !
