The winner of the People’s Choice Award for Reflections, 2011 was Eileen Hutson and her entry, Coast to Coast.
“It’s a painting I’ve been planning on doing for the last 10 years. I took a photo on Haida Gwaii on North Beach with my Daughter and my Son just playing around on the beach,” said Hutson.
Hutson expressed the board the painting was mounted on was also important, it was from an old fishing boat which came from Nova Scotia. She put off painting something on the board because it had to be something special.
With the image from Haida Gwaii and the board from Nova Scotia, the piece is called Coast to Coast.
