WOA Reception

The Wings Over Alma artists reception went well yesterday. A beautiful 40 degrees, lots of sun, and many visitors to the center. The ice has almost all melted below the dam so the eagles were moved out to the edges. There was one tiny island of ice that provided a perch for one-at-a-time hunting. 

Ben Golden's oil paintings (in photo) were next to my table and they got lots of attention. Carol Knabe's eagle photography was awesome! She has a terrific eye for catching action shots. Show co-organizer, Gail Pommerening, had pastels and prints of song birds in all four seasons, in addition to note cards. Jeff Byrns (table top display) uses various media, and subjects. His bulldog portrait was a favorite of mine. 

Our guests sipped wine, sampled the tasty hors d'oeuvres, and generally seemed to enjoy the event. Some of them even brought some of the show home with them! Thank you, patrons.

I was surprised Don's doctor from Eau Claire came to the show and later joined us for dinner at Catfish Corner!
Thank you so much Dr. Olson--we hope to get you back here again soon.
