Wine & Watercolors™ — at wineries and wine bars
Brews & Brushes™ — at micro breweries and tap houses
Blues & Brushes™ — at outdoor blues festivals around the Northwest
Hello Painters! Like a Pampered Painter Party™, but held in a public location such a Winery or Brewery. These events are fun, non-serious art-as-entertainment experiences with watercolors and—um—wine, craft-brewed beer, or great blues music! No experience needed and all art supplies provided. Sipping allowed and laughter encouraged. Great for birthdays and other special occasions, or you might just meet make a new friend. The first beverage is typically on the house and often some yummy snacks as well. “Thank you Chris, it was super fun! You made us all artists!!” Click here for the current schedule of public painting parties. Hello Hosting Locations! Are you a Winery, Brewery, or other location interested in hosting painting parties? Wonderful! These events are a great way to get new customers in your door and the attendees rave about their experiences at these events.

Like my art, or looking for a special gift, and not seeing that perfect fit?
Let’s collaborate to create a one-of-a-kind piece as a gift…or for you!
Consider giving the gift of art. A special memory like a pet, first car, favorite flower, a vacation are all great ideas for commissioning a piece of artwork. Together we can create something completely unique for that special someone…or for you! Initial consultations are free even if I determine that another artist’s work fits your needs. We’ll chat so I understand your specific needs, your budget, and your preferences. That said, any piece of work will still reflect my style. Your commissioned original comes with an acid-free backing board which can be used when framing. The whole kit and caboodle will be in a clear, acid free re-sealable bag. And, of course, it’s signed by moi. 🙂 To start the commission process, I ask for a deposit which secures your place on my wait list (yes, I have a wait list). The remainder is due upon completion of the piece. Price depend on a lot of factors, and will vary up or down, but this will give you ballpark idea of cost.
A very special piece of commissioned artwork. Your + Orb = yOrb
Personalized intuitive art created just for you…a reflection of your beautiful soul
Fuel your soul with intuitively-led, spiritual art Your light glows, flowing around you. Let me capture that light, shining with your own unique colors, for all to see. Your custom piece of intuitive artwork is suitable for framing. your Orb (yOrb) will be an original 5x7 watercolor painting, signed by me, with a mat (so the finished size will be 8x10), an acid free backing board, and a “meaning of colors” insert, all in a resealable clear acid free bag. To see examples of others’ yOrbs, and learn more about how they’re created, visit my yOrb website here. Or if you’re ready to get started now, click here to put your deposit down and start the process for your own yOrb or as a gift for a loved one.
Brighten your day with an Original piece of Chris Blevins’ artwork
“I look at your art whenever I need some tranquil time.” – “High on the feel good scale.”
Enjoy a vibrant, yet calming, explosion of color by having your very own Chris Blevins’ original. An “original” in this case is a watercolor I made with own two hands and of my own design. Unless already matted and framed, your original comes with an acid-free backing board to use when framing. The whole kit and caboodle will be in a clear, acid free re-sealable bag. And, of course, it’s signed by moi. 🙂 Treat yourself to some yummy eye candy and visit the Originals Gallery.
