True Colours exhibit returns

Brentwood artist shows creative product of summer cruising season

Brentwood artist Aurelia Jacobsen takes a moment indoors during the four-month sailing and painting trip this summer.

Each fall Brentwood artist Aurelia Jacobsen will exhibit more than 100 images.

She creates the sea and landscape plein air works while cruising the coastline with her husband for four months leading up to the show.

This year, the couple sailed more than 3,000 km along the BC coast, north to Prince Rupert and then west to Haida Gwaii.

“The cruising grounds of the inside passages of the BC coast are one of the world’s most scenic, sheltered and serene,” she said. “Wildlife was plentiful. There were herons, gulls, terns, cormorants, loons and shearwaters all along the way, and kingfishers working in the evening sun from silver snags fallen horizontally along the waters’ edge.”

Almost every day, at anchor and while sailing underway, Jacobsen painted. On her best day she completed five pieces and on the worst, was only able to paint a few distinguishing dots on some new napkin rings.

They will make up part of the sixth annual fall True Colours show — along with other works from abstract series’ — at the  Aurelia Jacobsen Studio starting Nov. 19 and 20. True Colours also runs Nov. 25 through 27 at the studio, 928 Greig Ave. in Brentwood Bay.
