Honourable Mention Award at the LOOK 2011 Art Show

Hi everyone,

I’m incredibly pleased to announce that my Johnson Street Bridge painting was awarded an ‘Opus Honourable Mention’ prize at the opening for the LOOK Victoria 2011 Regional Arts Exhibition and Sale last night!

Receiving my award from the internationally-acclaimed artist, Pat Martin Bates.

I feel very humbled to have been selected for this award, especially because over 450 pieces of art from 230+ artists were submitted for this show, and the jury was comprised of very esteemed members of Victoria’s art community. Thank you!

I’ve had a number of questions regarding my Johnson Street Bridge painting recently, and I’d like to take this opportunity to address them here briefly, in the hopes of clearing up any lingering confusion! 🙂

First of all, the original painting (the one that is framed and on display at the LOOK Victoria Art Show) is not for sale. I have decided to keep this painting as part of my personal collection.

That said, I have made a number of different types of reproductions of this piece, which are available to purchase and can suit a wide range of tastes and budgets. Here are links to the various formats in my online store: (Please note that the quoted prices do not include applicable taxes– 12% HST for residents of British Columbia and 5% GST for all other residents of Canada.)
