What is “Wine & Art?”

By  |  1 Comment

Often times when I say, “Come to an art event! They are so much fun!” people respond saying, “I am not creative,” or “I don’t know how to paint.” Guess what? When I say you will be surprised at what you find at the end of your paint brush…I really mean it.


One of our most popular events is at “Fincastle Vineyard and Winery.” I provide the painting, supplies and instruction. Fincastle supplies a wine tasting, gourmet lunch and beautiful setting.




Grapevines, babbling brooks, and the gorgeous Blue Ridge Mountains. What could be more relaxing?




So how does it work?

Let me break it down for you.


Step 1:


I create the painting in advance and you sign up online for the one you like. This summer at Fincastle, we did a series of famous art replicas. This blog post features Georgia O’keefe’s “Red Cannis (High) 1919.



This is Georgia O’Keefe’s original. Red Cannis (High) 1919.




This is my replica.





I leave the sample at the front of the class then work step by step on a new one with the attendees.


*When you arrive the canvas will be pre-sketched with the artwork of the day.




Step 2:


Choose a seat. I provide artist grade brushes, canvas, easel, apron and paint. I fill your palette with the paint as we go.



We paint under a tent on the outdoor patio. Gorgeous views all around us.


Step 3:


Follow me step by step as we paint section by section and layer by layer. I will direct the paint color choices and make brush selection suggestions as we go. Need help? Just ask.



Step 4:


Let me grab a picture of you and your finished product!



See? Wasn’t that easy?

Our events typically run for 3 hours. We break in between for lunch and wine….actually we break often for more wine, that is part of the fun!


I genuinely believe that nothing feels better then creating something yourself. I love watching my attendees transform from uncertain to confident throughout the event. That may be why I am so addicted to projects and art. I love that accomplished feeling!



A great way to let go, be creative and bond with your friends!

We are in the process of redesigning our website and will have photo albums from our events up soon. In the meantime, you can see pictures from all of our events on our Facebook page. facebook.com/lindeetree. Like and look and let me know if you have any questions.
*There are some art events that are not pre-sketched. Typically those are more basic/free stroke events. All of the replicas are pre-sketched.



See you at the next event!
