Octoberfest was a hit at Great Lakes Senior Living . We had ourselves a paint party in the open concept activities room. All while we rocked to an accordion playing traditional German music, beer samples, games and brats. Face it, even with out the paint party as an option, in Wisconsin especially, that's a damn good time. This rustic pumpkin patch painting started with two orange circles with layered acrylic paint in different warm hues. We moved next to the rusticated wood background, added some stems, tied a twine bow around the canvas and added a dancing Happy Fall saying. There was non stop laughter during this Octoberfest paint party.
