Raven Act at Musicfest
I created this painting for this year’s Vancouver Island Musicfest in Courtenay. “Raven Act” is mythical scene where a raven dances on stage while in the background the Tsolum river transforms into a rainbow coloured crowd of people. I’ve drawn my inspiration from several summers of enjoying Musicfest and also from painting on location there last year (see painting below). I see Musicfest as one way for people to be reminded of their common humanity, which is expressed through the music and guarded over by nature.
“Raven Act” is acrylic on canvas, 30″ x 36″. The price is $1550 and 100% of the proceeds are going to the CV Community Arts Council (which in the face of drastic cuts to the arts desparately needs support). It will be on display at Musicfest (July 9-11) in the merchandise tent, along with prints and cards.
