“Where’s Amy?” … Painting with a Purpose benefiting the Carmel Relay for Life. I love going to so many amazing events, but this particular one was extra special because I was able to attend with my mom, who is a breast cancer survivor. The day started off with a glass of wine in one hand and a paint brush in the other. Next we met a group of spunky women who were all ready to throw paint on blank canvas to create a unique piece of art. Carmel instructor Miranda Thomas’s energy and occasional dance moves made all of the participants feel as if their painting’s would soon grace the walls of Carmel’s own Hoosier Salon. In the end, we all had a blast, left feeling like artists and felt good knowing we raised money for Carmel’s Relay for Life. Don’t worry, “Where’s Amy?” … is not trading in her camera for canvas just yet but, it’s safe to say, I will definitely be back for more exciting painting adventures at the fabulous “Painting with a Twist” studio in Carmel.
