Little Straw reception was great.

The artist reception at the Little Straw Winery was wonderful.  The place was packed.  There was live music and non-stop food.  I have been part of small receptions in the past but this was the best.  I felt honoured to be included in the company of Ken Cochrane and Linda Lovisa.  They are such fine artists.

I had an interesting visit with the owner of the winery as he told me how he came to the area many years ago and struggled to purchase the wonderful piece of land that looks over Lake Okanagan.  We bought a bottle of the most amazing white wine to bring home and celebrate.

Next on the agenda is Art Walk, next weekend.  It lasts for two days and usually has 7 to 8 thousand people go through.  My painting of the little boy feeding the pigeons was to be in it BUT I don't think it's going to make it.  Not much time left.... we'll see.  Maybe I'll post my progress each day and that will force me to keep at it. :)

'Til tomorrow....


  1. Sounds like you had an awesome time! Hoping this next weekend's events will be super successful for you. I'm almost positive you can get your pigeon piece done, Bonnie! Come on girl! Pick up that brush! You can do it!

  2. You can do it, Bonnie. That painting is so cute.
