Oh, by the way…
I am BOB ROSS…lol
Hey how about something positive for a change..! Not the ol doom and gloom of late. Let’s talk about some good ol fashioned POS-SO-TIV-VITY..!
I think that works..lol
So last night I hosted my second Paint Nite with Joe event and this was after I worked my ass off all day on a construction clean up job..!
It takes an immense amount of persistence and hard work to get anywhere in life.
Believe me, I know…
Take it from a guy who just spent damn near a decade behind bars. And is now trying as hard as he can to get his life together. FOR ONCE IN HIS LIFE..!
So, I suck it up and do what I must if I want to see this art business of mine do anything.
Last night, was event number too.
Not a great showing that turned out for the event. But still, 9 people did. And that just about covered what I put into the COST of this Paint Nite with Joe..!
I lost my ass a little bit. But what I did make in return can’t be bought for the price of admission..!
I made a lot of MENTAL NOTES and I learned a HECK OF A LOT..!
All of which will help me with my next event that I’m hoping to host in about two weeks…
So what did I learn…
Well, for starters… The pic to be painted was not as easy for everyone to draw as I thought it would be…
Yep, this little fella right here was the cause of a lot of hassle for some folks last night…
Still, you’d be surprized to know that of the 9 people in attendance last night, about 6 of them did surprisingly well for NEVER HAVING ANY DRAWING EXPERIENCE AT ALL…
Does that speak more to the simplicity of the piece overall…? Or does that speak more to my AWESOME TEACHING ABILITY..?
I’ll let you be the judge of that one.
Still, yet, still (lol)…
I learned that a piece of this technical-ness is best to be PRE-DRAWN for the customers…
It would certainly make things a lot easier for the few who struggled…
Also, yet, still,still,yet, also…
OK I’ll stop.
I’m not sure if those who struggled, did so because of the technical level of the piece. Or because instead they were SHIT FACED DRUNK.
Yes, there were a few who were just that. And I tend to think their difficulties with the piece came from their drunkenness and NOT the technical nature of the piece.
Proof is in the fact that 3 children who were in attendance did QUITE WELL with the piece.
We also put together some really awesome goodie bags as a token of appreciation for those who were took part in the event last night, as well.
This is something I believe really HAS to be done. I want the customers to know that their business is SUPER APPRECIATED..!
