I belong to the Port Moody Art Association and I am pleased to say that they chose a photo I took of a great blue heron to be their mural image for a 50th club anniversary project in 2017. The photo was enlarged and this was the first time I has seen it. It will be cut up into 35 squares and distributed among 35 club participants. Each person (including myself) will use a reference drawing on a canvas to paint a picture and then all the canvas' will be assembled and the Great Blue Heron will reimmerge as the final image. There is a lot to do yet and we're still a long way from completion but the final mural will be hung at the Inlet Theatre in Port Moody.
Christine is a Coquitlam artist who has drawn and painted since childhood and is primarily self-taught. In 1987 she was accepted as an active member at the Federation of Canadian Artists and participated in a number of juried shows up until 1992, also attending a number of demonstrations and workshops by various artists during that time. Due to commitments of family and a full time job, her art was sidelined for a period of time, but painting however, has remained a passion throughout the years and she now paints on a regular basis. She is now once again an active member of the Federation of Canadian Artists (FCA) and belongs to the Suite E Life Drawing Association and Port Moody Art Association.
