This past July potentially marked the end of an era in Vernon; operating since the late 1800’s, the historic Kin Race Track may have had it’s last two race days on July 18th and 25th. They were festive days, line-ups at the betting wickets and plenty of excitement but all had an underlining tone of sadness.
I was there to record the events of those last two days, and Race Day Jitters is the first in a series entitled “At The End of the Track”. This beautiful horse while anxious with pre-race jitters, settled in to win his race.
The morning after my son and his fiance found this kitten (now aptly named Pumpkin) on the highway he was curled up in the crook of my husband’s arm purring loudly and kneading his paws madly. The epitome of happy and thankful to his rescuers.
This painting was won by Evelyne MacMillan in a “lottery” at the Annual Christmas Party for the Central Okanagan Chapter of the Federation of Canadian Artists. For the event, participating members were supplied in advance with a 5x7 panel to create a piece to contribute the event.
