"Every February you'll be my Valentine..."

After spending the last 9 Valentine days with my wonderful Valentine we decided to change it up and do something different this year to celebrate.  We found the most amazing place in Madeira called Cheers to Art. If you live anywhere near the Cincinnati area you should check it out. It is the perfect combination of relaxation and fun. You go in grab a glass (or a bottle) of wine or your favorite drink at their walk up bar and then you put on your smock and they teach you how to recreate a painting that you can take home! Check out the website: www.cheerstoart.com
Here are a few pictures from the process...
There's my Valentine...he's wonderful.
Step 1: Paint the background
Step 2: Make a tree...mine turned out abstract, but I like it
Step 3: Add leaves...Drew's tree is more realistic of course
Step 4: Add the "love birds"

Drew's finished product
My finished product (my birds are a little large, but overall I like it)
Step 5: Take home and hang up on the wall!

What a great idea! Most people would love to paint but they figure they don't know how or where to begin, so they never get the nerve to pick up the paint brush. I hope your friends do very well!
