Eastshore Kootenay Lake ART Connections ~ Opening Reception

"Then you will find, if nature has granted you any imagination at all, that you will eventually acquire a style individual to yourself, and it cannot help being good; because your hand and your mind, being always accustomed to gather flowers, would ill know how to pluck thorns."  ~ Cennino Dennini

~Kootenay Lake Art Connection~
  From June 27 to September 2, 2014


The Eastshore Kootenay Lake Artwalk is in full swing.  We celebrated it's opening at a the Wynwood Cellars Winery in Wynndel, BC.  Participating artists were invited to bring a painting to the opening reception for possible inclusion in the winery for the summer.  A panel of judges made the selection and I am thrilled to say that my painting "Harvest Time" was one of the paintings selected for sale and display in the winery tasting room.




More of my paintings are on location at the Wedgewood Manor B & B, Crawford Bay and at the Nelson and District Credit Union Eastshore Branch at Crawford Bay. 

Here are some scenes from the Opening Reception at the Wynnwood Cellars Estate Winery.

Congratulations Laura on the acceptance of your watercolour painting 'Harvest Time' being accepted into the winery exhibit. Of course I like the multicoloured grapes. Have you been noticing the multicoloured saskatoons in our valley right now?
