Artist's Eye View of Tofino

Artist Pat Butler from the Not An Octagon Collective spent eight days in Tofino not so long ago and did some painting while here. Thanks, Pat, for giving me permission to post some of those images here.

The beach scenes are from MacKenzie Beach and the forest scenes from the Tofino Botanical Gardens.










Sadly, I had to miss this year's lantern festival. This darn book is biting into my time for fun. (Hopefully it will be worth it!) Here's a blurb and (apparently) links to a slide show though. It's a magical night that one shouldn't miss if they're ever in the area.

  2. Thanks, Genica! I appreciate the support. Things have been a bit slow lately, but I'm back home and staying put for awhile so should be able to post a bit more. Cheers.
