Next week I will doing one painting a day and probably a new card a day in prep for the holiday open houses. Watch the blog for those items that will be for sale. Anyone in the greater Walla Walla area is welcome to the open house – 10-4 Saturday and Sundays for the weekends before and after Thanksgiving and the first weekend of December which is also winter barrel tasting here for all wine enthusiasts! Also I have work at Whitman Cellars and Saviah Cellars as well as Carnegie Art Center and will be hanging work in December at Luscious By Nature…one of the very best restaurants in Walla Walla, in my opinion. Ceil and Damon and Michael are great to work with and Damon is the BEST margarita maker!
If you are in the Pendleton area, Raphael’s Restaurant has a great display of pastel paintings. It’s definitely worth stopping by there for a meal – Rob is a fabulous cook and their menu is wonderful…they do a lot with huckleberries – from drinks to sauce for salmon (the best).

About bonnie griffith

I am a landscape artist who works in pastels, oils and acrylics. My work focuses on representational studies of the western US. I am basically self taught with lots of workshops and studies with several landscape artists such as Bruce Haughey and Clark Elster. I live in southwestern Idaho, am a native Montanan with a strong connection to the land. I spend as much time as I can in MT painting as well other parts of the northwest. I appreciate getting out in the field and working plein air because there is nothing like completing a painting in the true light of day and visually not being compromised by the use of a photo. In my work, my goal is to produce a piece of work that draws the viewer into the painting and challenges them to explore the scene; get a sense of the time of day, the temperature, the light or lack of. If I have gotten that viewer to step out of their reality and into that painting and enjoy it, then my work was accomplished as I wished. View all posts by bonnie griffith
