My Pinot Palette Pattern
Pinot Palette is a place where you can bring wine and snacks and friends (or a date) to paint a picture. There is a picture of the night and a teacher who takes you step-by-step through painting the monstrosity, I mean, lovely painting. Depending on the night you go, there is a particular painting that will be painted/taught. The choices are grim. But we're in it for the process not the product, amiright? Here are some samples:
I've been to Pinot Palette twice and I've had fun. Once, I went with a bunch of in-law ladies I adore and the other time, I went with a marginal-to-good date (attractive, polite, but did not ask me a single question). Both times, I outed myself as the woman with emotional problems, the one who doesn't play well with others. Here is proof:
The next time I go, I'm gonna paint a naked self portrait a la Alice Neel. It should make my date super comfortable, don't you think?
