Nicki has always been interested in art. Her grandmother in Wenatchee was an accomplished artist, but she passed away when Nicki was a toddler. Painting with watercolor was a passion she pursued only after the children were launched. Over the past 11 years, Nicki has worked hard to learn the necessary watercolor skills by taking classes from local watercolorists and attending many two-day workshops with Kay Barnes, a watercolorist from Woodinville. The 2015 painting is titled "Apple Capital Apples." There are so many varieties of apples currently, but back in the day, it was a real treat to taste a crisp, juicy Red Delicious! There is nothing more beautiful than a big, red apple hanging on a tree, a symbol of the vibrant life in our Valley and something we celebrate with our Festival every May.
