Winner Wonderland

As an artist participating in this year's window painting event for the Downtown Wilkes-Barre Business Association, I had the pleasure of working at the Anthracite Newsstand yesterday. 

For those who may not know, the Anthracite Newsstand recently sold a $4.2 million lottery ticket. Read more about that here.

Hence, the theme of their windows this year is Winner Wonderland. The owners came up with that brilliant idea.

All I had to do was paint the winning concept.

I had fun painting those dollar bills. Hee! Hee! Gotta love capitalism!

I worked from noon to 5 p.m. painting their windows, and had a most enjoyable time. A big thank you to Bob, Bettye Lou, Samantha and the entire staff at the Anthracite Newsstand for their kindness and generosity. I sincerely appreciate it!

Today, I took a walk around Wilkes-Barre to look at all the other window paintings.

The snowman in the window of Dunkin' Donuts looks very happy holding a warm drink and a doughnut. I wonder if he's drinking hot chocolate or vanilla chai tea.

My friend Diane Grant Czajkowski did a fantastic painting for Barnes & Noble.

The details are amazing.

Oh, Christmas Tree!

 ~A lovely Christmas wreath~

I love the colors in this Christmas tree. The artist did a wonderful job!

Nice work! I love the christmas tree and the wreath and of course snowman are always a fav...especially when they are touting the winning of millions of dollars. I keep telling my hubby that we need to win the lottery but it's pretty hard to do considering I never play it! :-) He did win $200 gas last week from Geico at the food show though!
