Starry Night

How was everyone's hump day?  Mine was an eventful one!  I'll spare you the boring details and get to the fun and scary stuff!  So, last night I went to another Swirlz Art class.  I reserved my spot to paint Van Gogh's Starry Night almost a month ago.  The class was tagged advanced, but had a note stating that the only reason they considered it advanced was because it was a three hour class.  With anticipation and apprehensiveness I waited for May 25th to come.  As I got to Swirlz I should have known it was not going to be a good night.  The weathermen were calling for bad storms...the same ones that caused all the destruction in Joplin, Mo.  Plus, there was a car accident right in front of me.  It just seemed as if there was a dark shadow over the evening.  So, as we start to paint the first hour I struggled to keep up with the instructor and the last two hours I fell behind even more.  I ended up giving up finishing my painting within 3 1/2 hours....right when the storm hit.  So, after getting completely drenched running out to my car (shielding my painting from any damage in a trash bag).  I started to drive home....while driving a tree fell on a vehicle that was two cars ahead of me!  So, after running back out into the hurricane storm to check on the driver, I detoured 20 minutes out of my way to get home.  Once I reached my house I found out I didn't have power!  It was kind of a crappy night and almost not worth with that, I will show you my painting.  Yes, it looks like a child painted it.  I am not excited about this painting at all.

Even though I had a rough night and I didn't like my painting, it was still fun to hang out with friends!  And I learned that even though they state that the class is only advanced because of the length...I will not take it because I am not advanced!
