Every now and again, I complain about not having anything to do in the Yakima Valley. But I guess I should have paid closer attention -- there is a ton of stuff to do. I just needed to look harder. Thanks to the great artist Christine Mendoza from Paint Nite Yakima, there is now something really fun to do. I also had no idea I could paint!Christine's step-by-step instruction took all of us that attended Paint Nite at the Yakima Valley Hotel and Convention Center to a whole new level.  I am never missing Paint Nite again.

Christine has inspired me so much that I am going to stop and buy a canvas. I think I will try to paint the real Wonder Woman. Do you think I am there yet? You decide. Check out our paintings from Paint Nite Yakima -- tickets sell out fast, but I hope to see you at the next one.
