I'm pleased that my painting, Sky Dance, received an Award of Merit at the Annual Campbell River Art Gallery Juried Members Show. This painting began as a quick sketch drawn with freezing hands while sitting in the teeth of a brisk north wind. My view -- directly across from the Squirrel Cove Craft Shop toward Boulder Point and Redonda Island. The wind whipped up some marvelous clouds. A certain amount of artistic license came into play in the final painting, but Cliff Peak is still visible in the left foreground area. Art by Cortes Islanders Jodi Forster and Ayami Stryck is also on view at the show which continues until April 27th.
