Holiday Drink and Paint Party!

  • Dec 6, 2013 · 6:00 PM
  • Ben Will's Studio (above the Russian woman's fitness studio)

Come celebrate the first year of Drink and Draw in Portland at this holiday bash, and contribute the first of many joint paintings! Painter and D & D member Ben Will is opening his SE Portland studio to our group. He'll be providing several large canvasses and paint, upon which we will all create some joint Drink and Draw paintings, between drinking, chatting and otherwise enjoying ourselves. There will be live music provided by Portland's own up-and-coming Buzz Holland Trio.  The party is BYOB and potluck, so bring something to eat and/or drink to share with the group, and your best drink and draw sketches for painting inspiration. Don't miss this one, should be the party of the year!

      Thank you so much for having us in your studio. Being surrounded by your work was a real treat. You have a real eye for form, and the best of your work evokes memories of dreams, those moments when I feel I know what is.

    Great scene. Thanks again to Ben and everyone for the artistic energy and treats. Unfortunately I locked my keys in my car so that kind of soured the end for me as I waited for a friend to come bail me out. :|

      You should have told me... I'm friends with the auto parts across the street.

    Confession: Last time I painted was 4 years ago, time before that: two decades. I can feel my painter's block is gone now. Thanks for the help!

    Just got the word that Portland seems to have cleared up a lot. Up north it is a bit of a different story. Be safe all and I will hopefully see you guys there!

    So annoyed I caught the head cold crud but I will be missing you all and NOT sharing the bug. Have fun all!

  • BenWill

    I am honored and excited to be hosting this event at my studio. The Buzz Holland Band came earlier and have setup for live entertainment tonight. Many have contacted me and are going to brave the weather. Roads here are clear and look good for driving. No need to bring art supplies as I have everything here. Don't know what to bring for food and drink? No worries, Fred Meyers is next door. See you all here!

    Will enough materials be available or do any of us need to bring brushes, etc.?

    • Aaron A.

      It's not BYOC, is it? (bring your own canvas)

      December 5, 2013

    • Aaron A.

    RE: Carpooling... I'm in SE Woodstock and can give rides to the studio. But I'll be leaving early most likely, around 8:15, so it's probably a one-way ride ticket. :)

    Alcohol and turpentine, what could be better? :) I'll try to make a flashy appearance.

    2 · November 12, 2013

    • BenWill

      Drinking turpentine may cause blindness. I think I read that somewhere.

      November 13, 2013

    • Aaron A.

      Good point. Let's stick to the absynthe and opium.

      November 13, 2013

    Sounds rad! Can't wait.
