Brenda Calhoun is an award-winning Vancouver Island artist who works in acrylics, watercolors and mixed-media. She has studied drawing and painting at North Island College with instructors Lorna Gibson and Chris Wooten, and has studied with Island artists Heather Lang, Dave Harrison, Saskia King, and Karen Martin, as well as participating in various workshops by Federation of Canadian Artists signature members Neil Boyle,SFCA; Marilyn Timms, SFCA; Donna Baspaly, SFCA; Don Farrell, SFCA, and Bob Sheridan, AFCA, plus numerous other workshops by well-known Island artists.

Brenda paints still lifes, florals, and tranquil scenes in acrylics and watercolors. Her paintings are an expression of her love of color and light. She is especially intrigued by still life arrangements with strong light and shadow. This value contrast is what inspires her to paint tranquil water scenes as well.

Brenda believes art is an expression of the soul. A quote from Martha Graham best describes how she feels about her artwork and that of others artists. "There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening, that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique." Creativity expresses the human spirit, and through her paintings Brenda hopes to share her creativity, her spirit, and her love of painting.

Brenda is a past member of the Federation of Canadian Artists. She currently paints and shows with the Brushworks painting group in Comox, and the Halbe Hall artists in Black Creek. Her work can be seen in member shows at the Pearl Ellis Gallery in Comox. She is a founding member of the Originals Only group - local and Island artists who show and sell their original works at their annual Originals Only Fine Art Show at the Comox Marina on the 2nd weekend in August.

"Water Lilies #2" is an acrylic painting of pink water lilies floating in a koi pond. The complementary color scheme worked wonderfully for this painting. Pink can sometimes be a challenging color to work with, but I was very happy with the end results.

Matted art print (8" x 10") $18.00

"Unique Rhodo" is the result of my humble efforts to recreate the awe-inspiring beauty of this flower. I always love the challenge of painting white flowers with the endless array of color to be found in the white blooms. It was the delicate variety of peach color that inspired me to create this painting.
