Sooke Fine Art Show

"Nothing Else Matters", acrylic  24x48"

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?

"Triple Murder", encaustic  10x30"

"Triple Murder" is the encaustic triptych, 10x30", that also made it into the show.  I am excited that this one is already sold!
