Pinot-Picasso

I learned about Pinot’s Palette when I was watching “The Little Couple” on TLC- I love that show because I like to see where they go and see if I know where it is in Houston. We moved to our new home about 2 ½ years ago and have been looking for some artwork to hang in our living room. Considering how long we have been looking, you could say that we haven’t been that successful; partly because we don’t really know what we are looking for. We know we want a painting, but that is really open-ended. So when I saw Pinot’s Palette on TV I thought that it would be the perfect solution to our empty wall. We were on the waiting list for about 2 months, but it was totally worth the wait. The entire class learns how to paint the same scene & the instructor tells you which colors and which brush to use, and where to put it on the canvas. The instructor said that we would leave with 2 “masterpieces” which I thought was highly doubtful considering our artistic abilities. The class lasts a couple hours and is $35 which covers the lesson and all of the supplies. This was a perfect date!
So now we have a painting….2 actually, and it’s something that we made together. Here is our wall, before and after. Can you tell who painted which one?
