Pinot's Palette

BMC just wrapped up the end to their fiscal year which means that our accounting team is coming off of our busiest time of the year.  As a thank you, our Assistant Controller planned a fun, end-of-year celebration at Pinot's Palette on a Thursday afternoon.  We had wine and appetizers while the instructor gave us guidelines to paint a piece entitled "Whimsical Fall".  We each received our own canvas, brushes, and paint.  As we are all accountants and stereotypically lacking in artisitic abilities, we were all quite nervous going in.  Our instructor was great, and I have to say much to our surprise everyone's paintings really did turn out great.  We had an absolute blast listening to 80's music and painting the afternoon away.  It was a great idea for a party and a fantastic way to wrap up the end of a busy few months.  Thanks Caroline for organizing such a great event.

Alithea hard at work.  We started out the painting by just painting this yellow and blue.

My painting right before adding the trees.

The group.  Although everyones was slightly different, they all turned out so good.

This is my final product.  A little blurry, but you get the drift.
