Art Bayou – Pottery painting

Sometimes a gift doesn’t need to be expensive, it’s the thought that counts. I don’t remember who told me that, but I do run into trouble during the holiday season. I spent hours and hours thinking what to get for person A, then B, then C, etc. There are times when I ended up with a gift cards for some people that I think they already own everything in the world. So, here comes the question, what do you get for people that already have everything?

I found this pottery painting place near where we live. It’s literally 5 minutes drive from where we live called Art Bayou. When I first tried out my first pottery painting was at Petroglyph Ceramic Lounge, it was located in Los Gatos, California. It’s amazing how fast time flies, before I know it, it has been three years already. I walked into the ceramic lounge without a clue how and if I could paint. I was told to walk around and look for a piece or ceramic I would like to paint. I did as I was told, I picked out the biggest mug I could find. In my mind, I wanted to paint something for my little cousin. I started painting as soon as I grabbed the mug, before I know it I had already spent four hours at the lounge.

After seeing Art Bayou, Victor and I decided to give it another try. Why? Just because it’s the holidays season, what’s better than making something for someone you care very much for?

That’s another Sunday for this family.

We planned to paint a couple more for friends and family. What’s a better way to tell them you love them or care for them than this?

I hope you guys would give it a try if you can find a pottery store around your area. Did I mention it’s extremely therapeutic to do so?

Until next time!
