Welcome to Victoria! Acrylic on Canvas

I get to the wooden boat shows around the island to take great reference photos as much as i can. I try to get all the good old wooden boats in the same place at the same time :-)

After painting this one the owner of the little boat in the middle noticed his boat in my painting and contacted me a few times to make cards and prints for him to send to his friends and family. I thought that was such a cool idea. Really nice man :-)

Also, this painting i entered into the Sooke Fine Arts in 2015 and it was accepted! I was shocked and excited. It sold on purchasers preview night. My dad, Aunt and Uncle had gone the next day to see all the paintings and when they came across mine and saw that little red dot on the price tag my dad called me to let me know it had sold. I screamed, out loud! I truly couldn't believe it. So happy that someone out there enjoyed the same things i do. I could spend all my time traveling to marinas first thing in the morning, watching the sun come up. It's so beautiful. So peaceful. No one's up yet. And there is usually a beautiful reflection in the water of all the boats. Heaven.... :-)
