on the B.C. Day long weekend. From July 29 through August 1, she’s the featured guest artist at the annual Filberg Festival. With more than 120 artisans, a variety of food vendors, kids’ activities and a cool music lineup ďŹ lling the nine-acre waterfront park, the event has earned a reputation as one of the best outdoor festivals in Canada. Visitors will ďŹ nd Barclay in the Filberg Heritage Lodge, along with a selection of her landscape paintings. Her work is ďŹ lled with light and colour, what she considers the key elements of a painting. “As a visual artist, light has a direct impact on colour so I’m always searching for that magical moment of great light,â€? Barclay explains. “Light changes everything. If it’s at it doesn’t inspire me at all.â€? What she is inspired by is nature. So she spends lots of time “rambling aroundâ€? with her camera watching the way light interacts with plants, sky and water. Back in her studio, the photos are used as a reference

to spark the memory of the experience and then Barclay lets her imagination kick in. Acrylics used to be Barclay’s medium of choice but a couple of years ago she switched to oils. “I felt like it was time for a change. Maybe it had something to do with turning 50,â€? she says. “Oil is deďŹ nitely more technical and more of a challenge. That’s part of what keeps me learning and interested in my craft.â€? Barclay spends winters in Portland, Ore., and the summer months painting on Hornby Island. “I lived here for six years and love coming back,â€? she says. “I love painting the local area and my studio – an outďŹ tter’s tent – is open to the public so I get to meet people too. It’s very rewarding to get that direct feedback.â€? Barclay paints for ďŹ ve hours most days. “Each piece seems to have a life of its own,â€? she says. “I start a painting and it just takes off. I’m more interested in evoking a feeling or mood than a realistic image.â€? Although a lot

People like them because they’re easy to transport, especially if they’re travelling. “And it’s an easy, affordable way for someone to get a piece of original art. � Barclay grew up in Lantzville in a small cabin by the sea and believes that location played a large part in her becoming an artist. She began drawing as a young child and always felt

that painting was her vocation. She obtained a Bachelor of Fine Arts at the University of British Columbia and a Fine Arts Diploma at Malaspina College, now Vancouver Island University. â€?Painting’s more challenging than most people realize,â€? Barclay says. “There’s a lot of repetitive movement involved and that can be hard on the body. And the technical aspect seems to get harder as you progress, I guess because you get more particular about your work. “But the most difďŹ cult thing is to just put aside all the other stuff in your life and paint,â€? she adds. “Most of what I know I learned by working on my own.â€?
