>> how are you
>> from the moment these painters walk through the door it's clear, this is not your average art class. for starters, there's the bar.
>> a chardonnay.
>> and the warm welcome.
>> they make you feel like family. it's comfortable to be here.
>> feedback like is that is what the mother/daughter team behind the paint bar wants to hear. their shop pairs pinot grigio with paint. it's a concept they immediately fell in love with when they heard about a similar business in atlanta.
>> how is it possible? this is in boston? how is that possible? we goggled everything we could think of, paint, drink, art.
>> we took a big chance but we really believed in it.
>> big mind over matter.
>> we said failure is not an option .
>> banks wouldn't lend to them. friend did. their business is not only profitable but growing with a second location.
>> my daughter had to kidnap me. i said no i'm not painting. i've been coming here every week.
>> i come here to relax. i have two kids at home this is my alone time.
>> on any given night the paint bar is packed with artists. the step by step tutorial is designed to bring each matter piece into manageable sections.
>> keeping the mood light and fun. which is also where the wine comes in.
>> if you're still feeling stress that of course why we have a bar.
>> while the concept may seem like the ultimate ladies night .
>> one of our most frequent painters since we first opened is engaged.
>> men are welcome too. even if some women would rather their husbands stay at home .
>> has he ever come?
>> we don't let them in this place.
>> at the end of the night there's a mini showing. as another successful night at the paint bar draws to a close.

>> i want to see a masterpiece.
>> did you really do this?
