Pinot’s Palette at Arbor Crest

Aug 2, 2014 by

I’ve had such a great time at the two painting classes that I’ve been to, that as soon as I learned that Pinot’s Palette was going to host one at the tasting room of my new favorite winery, Arbor Crest, I was so there! I dragged the husband with me for a date night too.


Luckily for us, the tasting room isn’t too far from our house. It’s on the top of a hill so the view is spectacular. I love their wine so much I’m going to cancel my wine club membership and join their club instead.

The couple we purchased our home from actually got married here. They also have summer concerts on Thursday and Sunday’s. (Need to go!)

Here is a sample of what we were supposed to be inspired by that the teachers were guiding us through.

Wash out your canvas with grey. The horizon is supposed to be wet and dripping, it’s the look that I loved about this piece.

I’ve bought some floating frames and will be hanging these in my office. The grey matches my office walls so well. I can’t wait to show them in my office reveal!
