TD Art Gallery Paint In - Victoria, Canada

 On a Clear Day  Acrylic on Canvas  24 x 48

Summer is finally here and so is the 25th Annual TD Art Gallery Paint In! This Saturday, July 21st, from 11am - 4:30 pm, 150 artists will be displaying and demonstrating their art forms and interacting with the expected 35,000 attendees. The Paint In stretches the entire length of Moss St, from Dallas Rd. to Fort St. I will be located at the corner of Moss and Clover Streets. It's always such a fun day and I really enjoy talking with all of you!

Silk and Persimmons  Oil on Linen  11 x 14

You Can Paint Too!
Please drop by and say hi and add some brushstrokes to the public painting that I will have at my station. If you've never put paint to canvas, here's your chance! Adding a brushstroke gives you the opportunity to enter to win one of two small still life paintings! How fun is that?

As well, I have been juried into the Art Gallery's Summer Small Works Show and Sale. Watch for my two pieces available for sale in this important fund raiser for the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria.

See you at the Paint In!



  1. Oh! dommage, oui c'est réellement dommage que vous soyez si loin. Je serais bien venue vous rendre visite et enfin pouvoir admirer en vrai vos magnifiques oeuvres... Toutefois je vous souhaite de très belles rencontres et plein de bonnes choses.
    Ces deux dernières oeuvres que vous nous dévoilez aujourd'hui sont très belles. le drapé dans votre nature morte est sublime tant par les nuances sublimes des couleurs que par sa délicatesse.
    Un très joli paysage également. Je n'ai jamais travaillé avec l'acrylique. N'est-il pas trop frustrant par rapport à l'huile ? Moi qui suis lente, je pense que l'huile me convient mieux.

    Gros bisous à vous.

    1. Thank you Martine for your very kind and supportive words. I wish I wasn't so far away as well, because I would very much like to meet you. You are such a wonderful, warm, blogger, and always make well considered comments. A gift of artistic knowledge and understanding. Acrylic has a lot of pros, but oil has depth and luminosity, and beautiful edges.

  2. It sounds like such an incredible day and how I wish to be there and see this amazing Moss Street Paint in...Best of luck to you on Saturday!!! I'll be thinking of you.

    1. It truly is an incredible day. Thank you for your good wishes Hilda, and I'm touched that you'll be thinking of me. I'll post pics of the event following. Cheers!
