Some of my friends and I like to get together and do those wine and painting evenings. There are four places (Cajun Canvas, Wine and Design,The Wine Pallette and Painted Parrot) around and near Charlotte that we have been to through the wonder of Groupon. They provide the materials and instructions and you bring the wine. It’s so much fun.
So the idea of mixing painting with origami came about during one of those evenings… but I couldn’t seem to get around to buying all the materials and getting everything together. Then my mother-in-law gave me a bunch of acrylic paints that were her mom’s and that seemed like a good sign to get started.
So, this is my first in, hopefully, a series of mixed media items.
