Paint Pals get together in Qualicum Beach

Group's artwork hangs in the Courtyard Cafe in Qualicum Beach

The Paint Pals group had their annual thank you at Courtyard Café recently.

Members of the group spent their morning and afternoon painting on the patio outside of the café.

Paint Pals is a group of about a dozen mid-Island artists which was co-founded by Linda Hudson and Wayne Brown about four and a half years ago.

The day of painting at Courtyard Café was their final group painting day this summer while they take a break for a few weeks before starting up again in the fall. Paint Pals get together every Friday to paint at a studio in Nanoose Bay.

Paint Pal member Michele McIntosh said she looks forward to their Friday painting sessions.

“You get busy in the summertime and you miss your paint pals,” McIntosh said.

While the group painted in the courtyard, patrons of the café began asking the artists about their pieces.

“It does bring in some other people to show what we’re doing,” Hudson said.

Paint Pals work is hung in the Courtyard Café (673 Memorial Ave., Qualicum Beach) year round.
