Hen House Wines make a “splash” on canvas (at least one did!)

We welcomed the makers of  Hen House Wines, along with their signature products, to explore  inner artistic qualities. What better activities to pair than painting and wine.
Step #1:  Open the wine.

openerI was impressed with the efficiency they demonstrated as the official bottle opener fired up the “power tool” style corkscrew.   The speed of this handy little device made by Oster meant the first step was a piece of cake. This group means business!

Step #2:  Lightly sketch the design outlines.

wine-0001Confidence increased with each stroke of the pencil… I can do this!

Step #3:  Fill in the background with the acrylic paints. Thin with water, as needed (or wine if it spills onto your canvas… it works).

Step 4:  Fill in the petals with paint  color of choice and use a darker hue to shadow and outline.  Accent with lighter hues.

wine-0011This step took a little longer, so there was ample time visit and discuss area current events and history.

Step 5:  Fill in the center and give it some texture by dabbing with the brush.

wine-0028Ta Daaaa!  All in a day’s work.

Thanks for the fun evening, especially since I was able to just sit back and drink your intellectually satisfying wines
