Painted lunch

A while ago I invited 4 very good friends over for a potluck lunch and some painting activity. We had a lovely time and at lunch time everyone was admiring the cute napkins I had, with a bunch of roosters/chickens on them.

Linda, Judy, Carol & Margaret

One of the ladies, we now think it was Margaret, commented that we should each take a napkin and make some art with it. Then gather again in a month or so and do a little show and tell.
Good plan! Anything to get us painting, right?!

So fast-forward to last week, when we all met at Judy’s place. Same format: Judy had made some fabulous soups, there was salad, good bread, fruit and goodies.
Everyone brought their work and this is what we came up with:

By Margaret Phillips

By Judy Byer

By Thea Haubrich

By Carol Munro

By Linda Swales 1

By Linda Swales 2

Memento Mori, Thea Haubrich

For our next challenge Judy had a great selection of napkins for us to chose from.
It will probably take a while before everyone finishes her artwork, but expect neat stuff again!
