Wednesday:) Whimsical Wine Glass Workshop

22 Oct

One of my favorite things to do is share my blessings and talents with others. Last night, I had the pleasure of teaching a wine glass painting workshop at Lone Star Wine Cellars on the square. Deanna Ross, the sweet proprietor, is also a friend and a very talented wine glass painter in her own right.(I believe she had an excellent teacher..ha, ha, personal plug.)

My absolute favorite part of the process is seeing the pride and smiles of the ladies when they’re done and they sit there admiring their finished masterpieces. I always say, “I’m not a great artist, but man… I’m an amazing teacher.” Very true, modesty is not one of my virtues. I think the secret is cracking jokes and making everyone feel relaxed. Then the most important aspect is telling everyone what a great job they did, and it isn’t a lie because everyone creates something fantastic.

See for yourself.

   
    
    
   
Now, each lady has a pair of fun handpainted wine glasses that they can brag about. All their friends will be impressed, and if  lucky, will receive one as a gift. 

I’ll have another class at Lone Star Wine Cellars on Nov. 17th, but I can also do a workshop for interested groups in your home or mine. Just give me a jingle.
