You may need a cup of coffee or tea (or whatever you prefer) because there's a lot of pictures coming up.
Earlier this month, thanks to my friend Aruna, I discovered a lovely new cafe.
Art Cafe Kuwait is a cafe downstairs and a ceramic painting studio upstairs.
The first time we visited the cafe was during Ramadan, which meant no eating or drinking during daylight hours because of fasting.
So we spent our time exploring and sketching.
A different take on the same inspiration photo.
She's all about detail, and I'm all about color.
The cafe owner displays some of her own artwork.
And even turned some of her paintings into these large window decals which are so lovely with the light shining through.
There are small art exhibitions every few weeks displaying the work of local artists.
It's really such a relaxing and inviting environment to spend quality time with friends.
Aruna is a wonderful artist and is encouraging me to draw more.
I'm sure you can figure out which one is mine (think color!).
Our friend Emina joined us for a short while and we encouraged her to draw something.
She's good at lettering so next time we meet we will get tips on doing that.
Now that Ramadan is over, we are also able to enjoy the goodies that Art Cafe has to offer.
Creativity is contagious. Pass it on.
Have a great week!
