Artiste

I hope everyone had a fun New Years Eve! I'm doing a little recovery! A B&W is about all my eyes can handle right now! ;P
This is a shot from our trip. While we were cruising up the coast we decided to go into wine country and do a little sipping. This is a shot from this great winery we found called Artiste. They use local artists work for their labels and have the originals displayed in the tasting room. In the corner there was an area for clientele to try their talent with paints, chalk, and colored pencils. We could not drag the girls out of this place! Fun stop!
love this!!
the tone of this capture is amazing, and it looks great in black and white! :)

I really like this. Painting appeals to me. I don't paint and can barely draw, but it intrigues me. Your photo shows why it's appealing. So many tools and choices.
