I was a very busy girl last week getting ready for 2 shows, the FCA one and ALLSORTS, an eclectic mix of artists showcasing a few pieces each. I had been invited by my friend Judee Doyle to participate in this show back in October I think. When I committed to it, I couldn't, of course, foresee the events that took place later on in November which almost prevented me from being able to participate. But I am happy that despite everything I was able to have a couple of new pieces that I painted in February after we were out of the hospital. The show turned out to look great. My friend Sharlene Stushnov-Lee and myself did the hanging of the artwork and we got lots of compliments on it. The opening was last Friday night, it was very well attended and lots of fun (we even had a puppet show and some opera!).
My goal with this painting was to capture the light that happens when you have very dark skies after a storm and the sun comes out tinting everything a very rich deep gold. These are the true colours you see, just as if Nature had been photopshopped!! This is again a BC Landscape, so typical of what you see when you live in this part of the world. Very blessed to live in such a beautiful place!
Show runs until April 22. I will be painting on site at the Gallery this coming up Wednesday April 15 from 1 to 3.30. Stop by and visit if you can! Art Centre at Cedar Hill - CACGV Main Gallery - 3220 Cedar Hill Road

Mi meta con esta pintura fue capturar la luz que hay cuando los cielos se ponen muy oscuros después de una tormenta y sale el sol, tiñiendo todo de un dorado profundo. Estos son colores verdaderos y es como si a la Naturaleza le hubieran echo Fotoshop!! Este es un paisaje de BC (British Columbia) que es tan típico de lo que se ve cuando uno vive en esta parte del mundo. Estoy muy agradecida de vivir en un lugar tan hermoso!
La muestra continúa hasta el 22 de Abril. Yo voy a estar pintando en la galería este Miércoles 15 de Abril desde la 1 hasta las 3.30. Pasen a visitar si pueden. Centro de Arte Cedar Hill en la Galleria de CACGV - 3220 cedar Hill Road.
