On this clear summer day, I walked with a good friend on trail I’d never walked before in Gowland Tod Park. We hiked up to a viewpoint where we could survey nearly all of Brentwood Bay, and then down to a beach far below. As we clambered up the point at the end of the beach, we came upon a rocky meadow with this view of the bay, framed perfectly by an arbutus tree.
The original of this painting has sold.
I am pleased to announce that I am the artist in residence at the Hotel Grand Pacific on the inner harbour here in Victoria, BC for the month of August. This is part of the Artishow program, run by the Victoria Arts Council.
I have been painting, in the lobby of the hotel, and will be most weekdays until the end of the month. I have a number of paintings, prints, and greeting cards on display and available for purchase.
If you are in the neighbourhood, I’d love to see you. Stop by and say hello!
There is such a feeling of contentment that comes on a warm summer night, especially when the golden sun is casting its last hard light on the warm colours of a sultry arbutus tree at the water’s edge of a lush forest on Saltspring Island.
The original painting and prints of this image are available here.
It’s hard to believe the Paint-In is coming up so quickly – 2 more sleeps!
I’ll be set up on Moss Street, near Clover Avenue; #83 on the map above.
You can read more about the event here. I’m looking forward to seeing you there!
I am pleased to announce some of my work has been accepted to the Federation of Canadian Artists Summer Showcase exhibition at the Federation Gallery on Granville Island, in Vancouver, BC.
