I called You answered
Bonta Natural Artisan Gelato invited John to display some of his artwork in their downtown Scoop Shop in Bend, Oregon for the months of August and September 2019 in conjunction with First Friday Art Walk.
With that opportunity he was also able to paint live outside the shop during the art walk. Our friend, Tiffany Libbey, came along and played acoustic guitar while John painted. She’s a talented musician and at one point in the evening, she was singing about the painting spontaneously! It was exhilarating for John being part of a vibrant evening of music, throwing paint, hanging out with friends—old and new, and, of course, digging into the best gelato there is.
As wife of the artist I have the privilege of seeing firsthand how painting brings John alive. Painting LIVE takes it to another level! His expression says it all.
If you are in Bend, Oregon on September 6, 2019 we would love to see you at the Bonta Scoop Shop for another night of music and painting. While you are grabbing your share of gelato, you can view John’s artwork on display and then join us outside to hang out! We look forward to seeing you there.
