Last weekend I had the pleasure of teaching at Marie-Pierre’s (MP) 30th birthday party. She was very involved in the planning of the piece which I LOVED. That way I knew she was going to get something she liked. Sometimes it is hard trying to decide on a piece when you don’t know a person very well. I could tell that her relationships were important to her so I did a community mixed media piece.
Here is everyone jumping right in.
I was pretty excited and surprised to find out that half of the guests were guys. That has never happened. I am lucky if there is one male and he is usually a brother or a spouse who has been forced into it, haha. Not with this crowd. This was a very creative crew who didn’t need to be coerced at all.
So very focused and precise, awesome!!
The guest of honour…
and her piece.
MP and her sisters. They were all so sweet and supportive of each other, it was adorable. (Made me wish I had a sister :)
Here is Sean (Mr. Ravenswing himself), hard at work, or play I should say.
He was the first one done. Here is his gorgeous piece.
Everyone was so thoughtful in creating their canvases. Here is another quote on Bruno’s (MP’s spouse) piece.
The photogenic couple.
Here is what it looked like on their couch before I took it home for the finishing touches.
Here is what it looks like now after I outlined everything and tied it all together.
It is so great because you can see the personalities behind each one. The bottom is the birthday girl’s and the top is her sister Christine’s crazy haired girl.
The bottom right corner of this one is Alice in Wonderland themed. All of the people have roots for feet to represent MP establishing roots as an adult.
Such a great bunch, they were staying and continuing the party with some drinks, yummy food and karaoke. So fun!!
