I got in the Sooke show! What's more, I got THREE pieces in the Sooke show! I couldn't be happier. (The Sooke Fine Arts show is one of two regional juried shows that is a challenge to get into...so getting all three of my submissions accepted is great!)
I've just finished my month-long artist-in-residency at the Inn at Laurel Point. Although I worked on an oil painting, most of the time I did pencil or charcoal portraits, using a photo as a reference. They were relatively quick and they're less complicated: there's no colour to worry about!
