Did you know that the Texas Hill Country is ranked as a top wine travel destination world-wide by Wine Enthusiast and Wine Spectator?  While we here in the Lone Star State have considered the Hill Country a fabulous weekend getaway for decades, the global notoriety is a wonderful and welcome validation.  Whether you are looking for a romantic getaway, a great girl's weekend, or a place to say your vows, you will find no shortage of ambiance in the Texas Hill Country.  

As the hub of the 15,000 square mile Hill Country wine region, Fredericksburg is a small town with big charm, and the most popular place from which to stage your tour of some 37 wineries spread across the region.  It is also conveniently located only 70 miles from Austin and the Austin/Bergstrom International Airport.  

Check out the Texas Wine Trail for loads of information about wineries, lodging, dining, and special events.  And if you have a chance to make a stop in Austin, bring one of your favorite bottles and come paint with us at Pinot's Palette North Austin.

We here at Pinot's Palette believe great teamwork is essential for getting the most out of your workforce.  While individual effort contributes in its own way, it is almost always the joint efforts of the entire team that determines the success of a project.  Team building in an office fosters better and open communication among employees, as well as between employees and managers.  It goes a long way in improving professional relations, understanding, cooperation, and employee motivation, thereby ensuring better productivity.  

One of the best reasons to have team building activities is to promote creativity.  Taking a team out of the office and exposing them to new experiences will force them to think outside of their normal routine.  Working together with other team members can ignite creativity and fresh ideas, which are great qualities to bring back to the office.  

Pinot's Palette is a great place for team building!  Click here for more information.

If you haven't had a chance to make it out to the hill country to see some bluebonnets this spring, you should definitely check out Muleshoe Bend, which was called the "2014 Field of Dreams" by the Texas Bluebonnets Sightings website.  We drove out this week to take a peak and it is as beautiful as ever again in 2015!  

Muleshoe Bend is in Spicewood on Lake Travis, about 40 minutes west of Austin.

Sometimes our customers wonder what they should do with their paintings after they leave our studip.

 

We encourage them, of course, to display it proudly in their homes or offices.

We have a variety of painting masterpieces in our painting library ranging from landscapes, abstract, wine-themed, seascapes, floral, figurative, and much more, which makes it easy to choose the perfect painting to create for your home. 

Over the next few blog posts, we will share some examples of how you can display our paintings in your home. Here's an example below using our "Blissful Birds" painting on a mantel piece. The walls of your home are not the only options for displaying paintings, and the Living Room area is not the only room option!

We hope we inspire a little spark of home decorating creativity in  you and hope to see you soon to Paint, Drink and Have Fun with us!
