I’ve had some fun painting. Lacking any real talent, but wanting to hang out with friends, a few of us did some painting. We each wanted to say “I painted it myself!”
Come on. It looks like fun, doesn’t it?
First we had breakfast at a Minneapolis diner, Hot Plate, which features PBN (paint by number) masterpieces on their walls. We knew we could do fantastic, realistic paintings with acrylics, too.
I chose the paintings for all of us by beauty and by price. I got last dibs. Here is a lovely hand model showing us her technique.
PBNs take a long time. They don’t look like they would, but they do. And one of us even had to use special painting techniques to finish her piece. Can you tell which one is hers?
I’ve had fun. I even wrote the quiz you’ll find below. Take it and then go to Paint by Numbers House and look around. Then it’s off to this Pinterest paint-by-number site. Now go buy your own kit!
