Paint Craze

I recently had the pleasure of attending a “Paint Craze” event. If you are not familiar with the event,it is where
a group gets together (usually at a restaurant) to learn how to paint a pre-determined image. Generally the events are sponsored by a charity, all the better. The charity for the one I attended was the 13th annual 94.7 WMAS Radiothon for Baystate Children’s Hospital. This event was sponsored by Wendy and Jordan Franz. In August of 2010 Jordan had a grand mal seizure and was at Baystate Children’s Hospital for over a month. Since then Baystate has become a part of the Franz family and over the past three years they have spent a lot of time there. Jordan believes in giving back and helping every child have the best experience possible; therefore, she raises money for the Radiothon every year.

This is the image our group painted.

This is mine, the original was of “blue poppies” but some (not surprisingly) mine morphed to something more under the sea looking.

I even added a seahorse for good measure LOL

One lovely older gentlemen went in a whole ‘nother direction and painted this lovely winter barn scene. He later donated it to raise additional funds for the charity.
