Cox Bay Art Card
Art Card 6"x8" by Tofino Artist Mark Hobson
Located just outside the northern boundary of Pacific Rim National Park, Cox Bay is one of the most attractive beaches near Tofino, B.C. Three resorts front onto this half kilometer of sand which frequently hosts international surf competitions. I am drawn to the interesting headland, known as Sunset Point, that marks the north end of the bay. In early spring and fall the sun sets over the Pacific with silhouettes of the headland making a distinct foreground. Large expanses of wet sand create reflections that are a enjoyable challenge to try to recreate in paint.
