I’m happy to say I won the People’s Choice Award at the Sooke Fine Arts Show this year, for my painting A Warm Spring. I’m really honoured and happy to win this, thanks to all who voted for my painting!

Sooke Fine Arts Show 2011

This year I have two pieces in the Sooke Fine Arts Show, which opens this Saturday, July 23 at 10 am, and runs until August 1st.

Sooke Fine Arts Show

I’ve been hopping from deadline to deadline — I guess that’s summer in the arts. The next one is the Sooke Fine Arts Show, a juried show that is a popular destination every summer for art-lovers. I had a piece in the show, The Camisole, back in 2004. The trouble is, the submissions have to be unshown pieces. Very tricky when one presently has a show in town, and everything recent is hanging in full view. So, I’ve started two new ones in the last week. I hope I can get them done in time. The Sooke show frowns upon entries that are still wet!

These paintings are presently in my show, Playground, at Dales Gallery. They are large, 3 feet square. The rest are now on my website.



And regarding the last post, the Bird painting raised $2000 at auction for A Loving Spoonful! I’m very proud of this.
