Crystal Charlotte Easton works on her painting “A Mother’s Blessing” during the 2013 Music on the Mountain festival.

A Mother’s Blessing

Crystal Charlotte Easton spent days creating it, and many admired it, but in the end, only one person could have it.

Crystal Charlotte Easton spent days creating it, and many admired it, but in the end, only one person could have it.

The original painting “A Mother’s Blessing” was done by Easton over the duration of the Music on the Mountain festival at Murray Ridge from August 23-25.

Easton returned this year, after having done a similar event last year at the festival, in which her painting was silent auctioned off to the highest bidder.

This year, tickets were sold over the duration of the festival as the painting came to life and after were available  in town.

It was only $5 for a chance to be the proud owner of the original work of art, and many people were purchasing a number of tickets, hoping to be the lucky winner.

The draw took place at the Stuart Lake Golf Course on Sept. 1, and the winner of the painting was Darlyn Alec of Quesnel.

Lionel Conant, president of MoM, said when he told Alec she had won, she said she had been dreaming of it all weekend.

Part of the proceeds of the raffle went to the Music on the Mountain Society, which added up to around $500 and Easton waived her $500 performer fee for the event as well.
