Paint. Drink. Have Fun

Our entire family has been involved in the creative arts for all of our lives.  We have mostly been involved through music and dance, but we have found all forms of art to be very satisfying.  In art we are able to live out of our passions and find energy.  Our personal mission statements even say the following:

Chris Graves personal mission statement - I exist to be challenged physically and mentally, which ignites creativity and the arts inside me, so that I can teach others what life has to offer in a unique way.

Becca Graves personal mission statement - I am an encouraging believer that exists to nurture others through listening and celebrating life.

We have a passion to be involved in the arts our entire life.  As you read this article, you can also see there are other benefits from releasing the artistic side of yourself as well.  We hope we can help you find the hidden artist inside yourself at Pinot's Palette - Georgetown. Paint. Drink. Have Fun.

Art is Good for Your Brain

We found this painting cutie, but we need a good name for her. Help us out and name our Spokes-Pig!

She is a micro tea cup pot belly piggy, weighing in at 2 lbs! Don’t let her weight fool you, she may seem small but she can squeal like she weighs 200 lbs. As a natural artist, she is learning to paint, her work is being donated to several Charites to help raise awareness for their causes.

The winner of the naming contest will receive Pinot’s Palette Swag, including a Gift Card, T-Shirt, and Wine Tumbler—a $200 value!

Once your submission is approved, share with friends and family to gain more votes! Be sure to tag your post with #pinotpig!

Painting canvases benefits more than your social life...

Have you ever thought about painting canvases as a way of meditating or bettering your self-esteem? Believe it or not painting is a great way of improving your health. From eight year olds to 80 year olds, painting is a positive activity that will make you feel good. We’ve put together some reasons why you or people you know should start painting:

1. It’s a fun way to learn!

The first reason painting on a canvas can benefit you is because it’s fun. If you find pleasure in painting then it will make you happy. Painting can be a healthy source of entertainment for all ages. In addition to being fun, learning to hold a paint brush and use it effectively is an important skill to possess. For elderly and younger kids this hand eye coordination will strengthen fine motor skills.

2. Communication/Therapy

Now we understand that not everyone thinks painting is the most enjoyable activity to partake in, but why not do it to improve your communication. Look at painting as a channel of communicating. This new language is our personal language that others may interpret in different ways. Do you or someone you know have problems expressing yourself? This is a great reason to turn to art and painting. Now for the therapy side of things, painting lets you enter your own zone of thought. Taking painting classes can actually lower your stress level and build up relaxation. If you are contently nervous or feeling aggressive… try painting!

3. Practice to improve health

Removing yourself from your surroundings and concentrating on the piece of art you are creating can help different types of pain fade away and take you into a state of Alpha. Miracles are said to happen when in this state. From logical elements to emotional expression painting stimulates both your right and left brain.

Painting is fun as is, not to mention all the other benefits that come along with it. Add a glass of wine to this setting and you’ll be good to go. Want to paint with your friends and family?
