RespectFest 2017 – September 18 – 24

RespectFEST 2017 is about celebrating respect & diversity in the North Okanagan as part of Canada’s 150th Birthday. It is a week long celebration that will provide opportunities to learn about, and interact with, people from all different races, cultures, religions, and backgrounds. One of the events planned is ART ABOUT TOWN. Local artists are encouraged to team up with a downtown business to display their artistic talents. I am happy to be teaming up with Nature’s Fare Markets in Vernon and will be displaying my art in their Bistro and also having a “Meet the Artist” event in their store on September 22 from 11am-3pm. I hope you will stop by and say hello. My artwork will be on display for the full week and at the “Meet the Artist” event I will be giving away one of my illustrations for you to take home and color.

Although summer weather is still going strong, here is my latest illustration showing a squirrel getting ready for winter. I have called it “The Stash” from a real life event when I lived on the coast. We had a garden shed that had my big rubber boots inside. I went to get them one day and when I went to put them on they were filled with sunflower seeds. I did not have the heart to throw them out as that squirrel worked so hard to hide them. I thought acorns would work for this illustration. All illustrations in my gallery are available as cards at locations found in my “Shop”. Have a great September!!
