“With COVID keeping us all housebound for the past many months, I started looking around at my own environment for inspiration,” Willis said. “I did a lot of still-life work and some garden paintings but I really wanted to work on the human form, so ‘Why not myself?’”

The annual CVG Show is one of the largest and more prestigious art competitions in the Northwest. This year’s show saw submissions from 327 artists from cities and towns throughout Washington state, entering a total of 607 artworks for consideration.
