The image of the pineapple now expresses the sense of welcome, good cheer, human warmth and family affection inherent to such gracious home gatherings.
Show the world that friends and loved ones are welcome in your home by displaying your very own Welcome Pineapple on the wall! Never painted before? Do not fear! Our instructor will guide you, step-by-step, from blank canvas to finished masterpiece.
