Name that spot! If you're lucky enough to have visited here, I bet you stood in almost this exact spot and listened to the water hitting the wet sand. A spot for all seasons. 👌🏻HINT: it's located on Vancouver Island. Where are your favourite spots to adventure on this beautiful little island of ours? Always looking for new ideas and inspiration, not to mention local travel tips 🏞🌊🌲
Hippo, my studio helper extraordinaire! He loves sitting in my studio to help me work! Today we finally got to open the windows after days of being inundated with smoke because of the BC wildfires. We are appreciating the fresh(er) air blowing through and it is inspiring us to get creative! 😊 . . #catstagram #yyjartist #adorable #canadiancreatives #animal #siberiancat #cats #catlover #watercolor_art #artforthehome #vancouverislandart #vancouverislandartist #yyjcats #catoftheday #vancouverislandartists #vancouverisland #yyjpets #westcoastlife #vancouverislandhandmade #instaart #cat #photooftheday #supportthearts #instacat #lovecats #canadianartist #shophandmade #ilovemycat #yyjarts #watercolor

Long, hot, summery days call for big releases of refreshing art onto wall space! We LOVE this wall expression created by the talented @halfpretty. If you don’t know Megan she is a multi talented artist who is always pushing the boundaries with her design and process. Megan loves painting, drawing, sculpting and most recently has found a deep calling to pursue carpentry. We have no doubt that her growth alongside wood will transfer into artistic expression. Thank-you for sharing your ever giving energy with the world and showing us that you don’t need canvas to ART! . . . #wallart #painting #mural #carveouttimeforart #doitfortheprocess

Getting my gloss on! I've moved my workspace outside today! Finally the sky is getting blue again after a bunch of hazy smokey-sky days from the wildfires. So, I've got a lot of good stuff on the go right now... These fish sparkle like jewels and... Is that a skate deck getting prepped too?😲 Fun things to come! 🤙😁 #fishart #painting #acrylicpainting #wildlifeart #drawing #acrylicartist #finishline #yyjarts #westcoastartist #vancouverislandart

These lovely Arbutus or Madrona trees grow in rocky outcroppings along the coast on Vancouver Island. Their rusty red bark contrasting against a blue sky and sea is always a wonderful sight. #arbutustrees #madronatrees #vancouverislandart #canadianartist #victoriaartist

Who doesn’t love stopping to get good coffee only to find amazing art surrounding you at every turn! Milano coffee house not only brews amazing coffee but they brew amazing artists and show their support by adorning their coffee shop walls with funky art works. We love the range of works by Melissa Pavlovic who is a Vancouver based artist as her works bring special tones that reflect our surrounding landscape. Fierce Diety, Proud Fox and Divine Cougar appear in this photograph and the works hold an impression that is equally powerful to the names they were given. @milanocomox #milanocoffee #supportlocal #homedecor #wallart #fox #eagle #cougar
What’s better than spending these yummy sun filled days at the beach? Finding little treasures like this left by Tara Lee Houston. 🌊 We think you should check out Tara’s page to see all the fun and engaging things she is doing with art over at @tlhoustonartwithheart. In this photo we love that this rock could be in its natural habitat but that is instead adorned with the art from the heart of a human. Thanks Tara, for sharing your imagination with the world! Please don’t ever stop doing awesome artistic things like this! . . . #nature #beach #rockart #beachart #paintingrocks #painting

Meet talented potter Sarah Blais from the Comox Valley! Sarah works expressively with clay and always has funky patterns and colours adorning her ware. She loves working both on the wheel and hand building, finding the versatility and availably to explore both styles of clay helps develop her overall style. Sarah feels mostly drawn to the raw and primal elements of clay and we love seeing all the things her creative mind develops! Watch the space over at @keepitlocalbc while Sarah starts a new adventure building her own studio and turning a potters dream into reality. ✨ #polkadots #clay #ceramic #bowl #bowloftheday #botd #throwing #handthrown #pottery
Patterns that arise in nature are profoundly beautiful and composed to perfection. Just like this photograph and its subject matter captured by Corey Hobbis over at @secretwindowimage. Corey is such an imaginative person and loves to bring design, photography and other aspects of art together to create something visually pleasing and inspiring. His photographs often capture pattern and movement be it with waves, moths, ocean ripples or flower petals and Corey always manages to give a sense of aliveness to a moment that is captured as still. We hope his photos inspire you as much as they do us and that you are enjoying this sunshiney Tuesday! ☀️ 🌊 #moth #photography #nature #pattern #photographer #potd

WIP! I'm having a lot of fun working on this acryla gouache painting of colourful Tuscan-esque houses. I just love the bright colours of the architecture with the lush greens of the bushes and trees growing up the walls! Still lots more work to do but I'm excited about the direction it's going in! . . #yyjarts #supportthearts #handmadeart #artinprogress #arteveryday #holbeingouache #painterslife #acrylagouache #instaart #yyjartist #art_we_inspire #vancouverislandartists #myart #beautiful #handmadelove #etsyart #waterblog #art #watercolor #vancouverislandart #etsyartist #artoftheday #gouache #gouacheart #sharingart #inspiration #instaartist #handmade #yyj #supportmakers

“Art is the stilling of expression. Where we can remember one moment of time within another moment in time.” ✨✨✨ My art is now up at the Mudsharks Coffee Bar in Courtenay for the month of August and I will also be sharing my completed works on here too so everyone can see (-: . . . #artshow #mudsharkscoffeebar #art #introspectionofdirection #collage #mixedmedia #abstract #abstractart #artshow #comoxvalley #courtenay #vancouverislandart #coffee #coffeelounge #artandcoffee #suzannayellow

My latest project! A double-layered #artresin lazy Susan that I upcycled from an old wooden one from the thrift store.
If you need a little extra flower in your day (which we all, always do. 🌻 you can head over to Nicolette Valikoskis page (@nicolettevalikoskiart ) and be bathed in all of her flowery goodness. Using cold wax and oil, Nicolette creates swoon worthy masterpieces that are inspired by our whimsical coastal landscape and intend the viewer to feel as though they are both indoors and out. We look forward to seeing where Nicolette progresses with her art journey and feel proud to have such talented artists that call the Comox Valley home. 💛 #floral #flowers #painting #abstractpainting #whimsical
Commission done a few years ago 💚💗💙
Taking inspiration from those moody beautiful days along the Pacific Northwest Trail. Click "LIKE" if you find this inspiring and don't forget to "FOLLOW" RobbARTBoutique. 18" x 24" -  oil on canvas seascape - 275.00 - Pacific Northwest Trail in Moody Magnificent Light - by Robbie Stroud Available for purchase later this week. Please message me to reserve this very special piece before it's gone. I've already sold a seascape of the same size earlier this week. This is without a doubt the keystone piece of art you want representing your home. You won't regret purchasing it, but you will regret losing your chance to own this one-of-a-kind seascape painting. #canadianartists #canadiantart #vancouverislandartist #oillandscape #landscapeporn #victoriaBC #tourismnanaimo #ycd #vancouverislandart #madeonvancouverisland #canadianart #pnw #tofino #tofinoBC #yourtofino #ukee #ucluelet #nanaimo #tourismtofino #britishcolumbiacanada #artist_sharing #oilseascape #vancouverislandbc #canadiancreatives #landscape_hunter #seascapepainting #pacificnorthwest #pacificnorthwesttrail #beachpainting
Painting today while also doing laundry, baking bread, hosting a play date...working from home has some amazing advantages but there are some days when I wish there was someone watching me and saying “wow!” Or “that was well done!” Or even just quietly sticking gold stars on my forehead. #motherhood #stayathomemom #workingfromhome #artistsoninstagram #oilpainting #peony #victoriabcartist #vancouverislandart #yyjart
