Land Of Lilliput by Leslie Dunsmore.

Denman artist hosting annual Garden of Lilies Art Show

Denman Island artist Leslie Dunsmore is hosting her 15th annual Garden of Lilies Art Show on July 7 and 8, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Inspired by the natural environment surrounding her home and studio, Dunsmore also seeks other landscapes as fodder for her art. Travelling each year for six to eight weeks at a time, she explores new parts of the world, sketching and recording ideas.

This year, she is painting the complex forms of tree trunks, including magical inventive bright colours and designs, and the silence is still palpable.

Her studio and home, including a large deck covered in floral lily displays, are at 4791 East Rd. on Denman Island. You can view a sampling of her artwork online at lesliedunsmorepaintings.com
