Heather MacNeil - Visual Artist
acrylic paintings


(posted on 2 May 2023)

As the Artist in Residence for the month of May, I am very happy to have 50 paintings of varying sizes on display at the Coast Hotel Victoria, located at 146 Kingston Street, near Fisherman’s Wharf. https://www.coasthotels.com/coast-victoria-hotel-and-marina-by-apa

My paintings are on display in the hotel lobby and the adjoining Blue Crab Restaurant. https://www.bluecrab.ca/ overlooking the water. Most of my paintings are abstract, however I’ve also included a few representational pieces such as 'Coastal Light' (see below).

If you’re in the area, please stop by to take a look! Although I won’t be painting on site, I am happy to answer any inquiries about my art or stop by to meet with you. Shipping can also be arranged. https://www.heathermacneil.com/contact


Nature Inspires!

While working on some new pieces, I am continually inspired by nature on my daily walks along the water. Although my art is mostly abstract, I also have some semi-abstract pieces. As I work through the layers of the painting, the energy I experience in nature is expressed with vibrant colours, rhythm, and movement and through a feeling of freshness, peacefulness, and joy.


The 'Healing Power of Color 2023' Exhibition

I'm very happy that my painting ‘Happy Vibes' (below) was selected to be in 'The Healing Power of Color 2023' Exhibition' that runs May 8 to July 8 on The Healing Power of Art & Artists website https://www.healing-power-of-art.org/the-healing-power-of-color-2023-exhibition/

Enjoy the wonderful and inspiring variety of colorful art in this exhibition!

Color plays a big part in my work. I find it uplifting and it brings me joy. I invite the viewer to connect with their own experience of color in my work.
