What’s In A Name?

my-name-isPart 1

Being an entrepreneur and creating that unique company name is a challenge.

But that’s only the beginning.

Then you have to take time and apply an enormous amount of dedication to develop and create the brand or image that you want to be known for and that you dream will one day be recognized by everyone in the community where you laid your roots. And then you dream even bigger – that your brand will be widely recognized across the state, the nation and the entire world.  Okay, maybe hoping for world-wide recognition is pushing it a little far … but an entrepreneur can dream, right?

A Piece of Indy – a Paint Cellar Contest

COOL CONTEST!  Now that I have your attention, yes, we have a brand new contest to present to you. We have taken pictures of Ashlie Duncan’s artwork at special locations in Indiana. Each day we will post a puzzle piece of the picture. It is your mission, should you choose to accept it, to figure out where it was taken. Each day we will add another puzzle piece to the picture. The first person to give the correct answer will receive the painting that is featured in the puzzle piece picture AND a free painting class in July or August!


How to enter:  Post your guess in the comment box below the photo.  You must name the landmark, not the name of the painting in the photo.  You can enter one guess per day.
Who can enter: Anyone!  Unless you’re friends or family of Ashlie and part of The Paint Cellar family.
How to claim your prize: You will be able to pick it up at The Paint Cellar Studio.  Sorry you will have to be a local or visiting the Indianapolis area as we will not be shipping the prize.

Congratulations April Maki for guessing correctly! It is the Indianapolis Motor Speedway!

A Ladies Date to Paint

The Paint Cellar is pleased to announce a very special event! On Wednesday, July 18th from 7:00pm-10:00pm, “A Ladies Date to Paint” will be held at the Shiraz Wine Café in Carmel. The Paint Cellar’s very own Ashlie Duncan will teach you how to paint, “Midnight Monument.“ You will paint your masterpiece from 7:00pm-9:00pm, and then you will enjoy a wine tasting, from 9:00pm-10:00pm. Or if you prefer, you may choose a decadent dessert and a non-alcoholic beverage instead of wine (may I recommend the Gateau Aux Trois Chocolate?). Seats are limited, so please reserve a space for yourself and a friend soon. The cost of $35.00 per person includes the painting, and wine or dessert.
