Martha_at_Special_Olympics_003

Friday night was a great night all around town for art. While the grown up in the arts community were attending the First Friday activities at Two Rivers Gallery and Gallery 4 South in Down town Wenatchee, there was one TRG artist notably absent. That being one Martha Flores. While the rest of us were enjoying the new art at the galleries and imbibing in just at bit of that red and white fruit of the vine and eating hors d’ oeuvres, Martha was cranking out 20 free portraits per hour at the Town Toyota center for the Special Olympic Athletes. Martha related after that it was “a great joy and a pleasure to do for these sweet lovely people (a tear in her eye), but it was truly exhausting.” One of the happy young athlete was overheard saying to one of is friends, “ it looks just like a photograph”. That almost brings a tear to my eye as well.
