3 of my paintings have been juried into the Sidney Fine Art show. Over 900 pieces were brought in to be juried, with 385 accepted by 235 artists. I am thrilled! I love being a part of this art show despite the mileage I rack up on my vehicle. One of the three juried in:
I have to admit, this one is my favorite.
But then again...maybe this one is.... The show is at the Mary Winspear Centre in Sidney BC and runs from Oct 18-20. Check out their website www.sidneyfineartshow.ca for more information.
Island Expo is coming up fast! November 2nd - 3rd, 2013, 240 Lions Way
Qualicum Bay, BC. I will be there with some of my latest larger paintings as well as a good selection of matted and packaged affordable small plein air paintings and a few of my fun resin pieces I like to play with.
Come on by to say hi! I always really enjoy this fun event. Susan and Jeff do a great job of putting the show on...and its nice and close to home!
I have recently had 4 of my paintings showing in the Blackrock resort in Ucluelet to celebrate the Cultural Heritage Festival in the area. The art show I felt was a unique "cultural bridging" display. I was honored to be a part of the event and hope to see more of this in the future. Art is art, artists are artists no matter what our heritage is. We are driven to create what inspires us and what we love. It is meant to be celebrated by all.
While in Ucluelet I stayed in a yurt in the Wya point resort/ campground which is located on an old village site of the Ucluelet First Nation. All I can say is WOW. A good friend and I spent a whole day on the beach not wanting to go anywhere else. Here is my painting that came out of the experience. I was so inspired!!
I have updated my site with some more new pieces, they are in the westcoast gallery, figurative and portraits of nature. wow...I was way behind!
