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.
