The 4th Annual Quadra Island Paint Out on Sept 12-13 attracted professional and aspiring artists from Montreal, Alberta, Surrey, Vancouver, Courtenay, Parksville, Ladysmith, Cumberland, Campbell River and Quadra Island, and many people came to see the paintings progress. Painting on Saturday at Rebecca Spit was a slice of paradise. Special thanks go to Lois, Vic, Cathy, Noelle and the Heriot Bay Inn staff that made a fun celebration on a showery Sunday. Firesign Studio hosts painting workshops and drop-in sessions and offers private instruction. For more information see the website at: or call Nanci 285-3390
