Bonnie Blue is very well known for her caricatures. It's the bread and butter of her art business. Consequently, she doesn't talk as much about her fine portrait work. Every now and again she's asked to draw a portrait and we are reminded of how good she is in this medium.
Recently the widow of veteran character actor Tommy Townsend asked Bonnie to draw a portrait of her late husband. You may remember seeing Townsend in such fims as Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, Toys with Robin Williams, or Bugsy with Warren Beatty and Annette Bening.
And this is the result.
What began as a way to make refugees from Hurricane Katrina feel welcome in our city has blossomed into one of the most fun nights of the summer. For one night, the usually sleepy 19th. Street in the Heights transforms itself into a rocking street party. People from all over the city don white outfits and come out to enjoy gourmet food truck fare and cocktails while checking out hundreds of local artists whose booths line the street.
For the 3rd straight year Bonnie Blue will be on hand with a large variety of her handmade art pieces. Each a unique object d'arte. Come see her and pick up something for your home that will make you smile, or commission Bonnie to do something that is uniquely YOU!
When and Where: August 1, 2015 from 6:00 to 10:00 on 19th Street Street in the Heights

Bonnie Blue is "Set up and ready to go" at the Marketplace at the Peanutbutter Warehouse in the Strand on Galveston Island. When you visit the Island this summer be sure to stop by and check out Bonnie's collection of one of a kind art pieces.
The Marketplace at the Peanutbutter Warehouse reopened on July 1 and will remain open everyday this holiday weekend. It has remained closed ever since it sustained damage during Hurricane Ike in 2009. Now it's finally back open to the public and Bonnie Blue has her booth stocked full of great one of a kind pieces. "It's newly restored and looks wonderful" says Bonnie.
After the big Independence Day holiday/Grand Opening week the Marketplace will return to it's normal hours of Thursday through Monday.
Look forward to seeing you at the Marketplace.
