What better place than a dog-themed brewery to paint your pet? Six Pack on Gooding Ave in Bristol is a cozy place to have a beer and paint a picture of your favorite furry friend. Besides the usual pups and kitties, we had a couple out-of-the-box pets, like a horse and even a duck! It was a great way to kick off the holiday week!
December's painting of Bristol's Mount Hope bridge was so popular that we needed to add ten extra tickets to the capacity! Everyone had so much fun and the bridges came out fantastic!
Due to the proximity to Thanksgiving, November's event was slightly more intimate than past events, but that didn't stop everyone from having an absolute blast! We painted this beautiful harvesty pumpkin still life and everyone's turned out unique and amazing!
October felt like it flew by in 4 seconds! We painted a Day of the Dead inspired skull with flowers and enjoyed Vigilant's Mexican lager "Hermanos". It was a great turnout and everyone created unique skulls with lots of personality!
Vigilant Brewing opened in July about 3 minutes from my house in Bristol. I partnered with Vigilant to run a paint and flight night- each ticket included a flight of ice cold beer. Thank you to all my friends and family who came to support and the new people I got to meet! You all reminded me how much fun this job is!
Mother's Day Paint and Sip!
Yesterday was a huge success and everyone created a beautiful painting in their own unique style! We enjoyed a nice charcuterie board with a glass of Great White from Newport Vineyards.
Testing the Tie-Dye
Yesterday was a beautiful sunny day and I thought it would be a great time to test out my concept for a "Sip and Shibori" event. Shibori is a Japanese style of tie dye using deep blue or indigo dye. There are various patterns and designs you can make. I tried the ring design and the triangle accordion fold. This would be a great event idea for outside at a winery/brewery!
Early April I was given the opportunity to donate my time for a Paint and Punch event for Big Brothers and Big Sisters in Providence. We painted a spring scene with a robin's egg nest. It was so nice to see all the different styles and color combinations that the kids and their mentors came up with. Everyone was so polite and it was a pleasure working with them!
