PORTRAIT/PAINTING OF SONYA
(click to see a bit bigger)
Yes, I am pleased with how it came out. This will print to 8 x 10 at 'excellent' quality - or it could be blown up. How delightful, afterward to discover this is in the exact colors of Sonya's bedroom, where this will hang!
Miles and I took a few moments out yesterday to visit our new Provincial Gateway Center for our little town! This $2 million dollar building serves as an entry point to BC - one of only six "gateway" centers province-wide. It's quite an attractive building - will be a real asset to our area. When you come visit you will have to take a tour!
THE FACADE OF THE NEW GATEWAY VISITORS CENTER
There is a stunning metal sculpture gracing the front of the center - a theme linked with our local native band - the Nk'mip. The Nk'mip are one of the wealthiest and innovative bands in all of Canada. The band also has a brand new Cultural Center, restaurant, spa and resort on the far side of Osoyoos Lake!
We took a few moments out to unpack a few boxes of books and art supplies at our NEW house on Saturday - its pretty exciting. Our new little home will be getting new carpet and lino this week. I will keep you posted! With all this 'good stuff' happening I never know what I will be blogging tomorrow!
Nothing beats uncertainty to make tomorrow more interesting!
"Therefore do not worry about tomorrow,
for tomorrow will worry about itself!"
I've got to run, have a lot to do before visiting my dear friend Melanie for the afternoon. You all have a wonderful day, and thanks again for your kind comments!
