This is the last weekend for the Sooke fine Art Show (July 28-Aug 6). Now in it's 26th year, it's a juried art show that showcases art from Vancouver Island and BC's Coastal islands (including Haida Gwaii!). It's a 10-day long show, so lots of opportunity for art enthusiasts to see some amazing and unique art.
I've had two pieces accepted into the show this year! I submitted both acrylic and encaustic paintings, not knowing if having two radically different styles would impact the jurors decisions or not (do they look at consistency of style?). But I was happy to have one of each accepted!
"Nothing Else Matters" is acrylic on canvas, 24x48". It's based on a photo I took in Tofino, my absolute favourite place. Last summer we were lucky enough to spend time in a gorgeous beach house for a week, and each morning I got of up early to walk my dog Lucy along the beach. This is the sunrise over south Chesterman Beach, looking into Rosie Bay. Familiar to any of you?
