Wonky Mountain Painting!

On February 13, 2012, in Art, Paintings, by brendajohima

OMG. I am selling more of my “Wonky Mountain” series paintings.

It’s time to let the few remaining, go bye-bye. My “Tweedsville” painting was so popular, and the lucky buyer, a teacher from the Comox Valley, is thrilled with her purchase.

Please contact me via my website if this other Wonky Mountains painting below (untitled and waiting for a name) interests you, and I will give you the happy details on pricing.

Size : 12×24 : Medium : Acrylic on Canvas
(This is the smallest, and the most affordable in the series. The largest Wonky Mountains painting sold was 36×48)

Say NOtoCoal on Vancouver Island

On January 23, 2012, in Comox Valley, NOtoCoal, Vancouver Island, by brendajohima

I live in the beautiful Comox Valley, in Fanny Bay, on Vancouver Island and rarely take a stance on political issues on my blog … I prefer to keep the focus on my art and photography … however, as this proposed Coal Mine will be minutes from my door, I do want to say that I am 100% opposed to a coal mine on Vancouver Island. There are newer, greener technologies available at this time and there is no need for a coal mine now, or anytime in our future on this planet.

The damage to our health, our drinking water, the very air we breathe is at risk … as well as our ocean, the sensitive ecosystem, the fish, the wild salmon, the birds, the wildlife … as is the very beauty that inspires artists and photographers to create their works on this paradise we live in, called Vancouver Island.

Say NO to Coal

FREEBIE !! … I feel so strongly about NO Coal Mine in the Comox Valley and on Vancouver Island, I created this. Say “NOtoCoal

Please share it, use it, put it on your Facebook profile or business page, share via other social networks and/or your website/blog … please spread it and help STOP this proposed Coal Mine. In addition to the damage it will do to our environment and the beauty that surrounds us on Vancouver Island, coal is a known carcinogen.

Thank you for your support on this issue that will affect not only those living in Fanny Bay, and in the Comox Valley, but it will affect every one of us on Vancouver Island, including tourists in future.

Tweedsville : My Made Up Town

On February 25, 2011, in Art, Paintings, by brendajohima

Finally getting around to putting some of my acrylic paintings and mixed media art back online, after upgrading to a new WordPress site many months ago. By popular demand (LOL) here is my made up town, Tweedsville 🙂

I have not been actively trying to sell this piece at all, she’s been quite happy at home, but it’s time to begin to sell, sell, sell and LOL. Soooo, Tweedsville is now available. Quick! Grab it while we still have snow on Vancouver Island.

You can contact by good old fashioned telephone at (250) 335 – 1195 if you would like more information on pricing and/or shipping.

Enjoy, this is one of my FUN favorites.

** By the way, I am trying an experiment with new pricing called PWW or “Pay What It’s Worth” … So, you tell me what art is worth to you in your life, to your business. I don’t just mean the perceived value of the piece, but what is it worth in $$ to your home, or as a gift, as a memory, or as a feature piece in your place of business. Simple, email me (brenda [at]]  your PWW price, and I will say Yes or No **
