Text of introduction by Joseph Planta:

I am Planta: On the Line. This is THECOMMENTARY.CA.

Carol Evans joins me now. She’s is a master watercolourist, who’s just published her third collection, The Shores We call Home: The Art of Carol Evans. I think I saw it on a bestseller list the other day. It has a foreword by Arthur Black. It’s a gorgeous book of her paintings which depict British Columbia’s coastal landscape. I have a limited sense of art, and thought for a second after glancing at the book, that it was a book of photographs. Carol Evans is an internationally acclaimed artist, who’s exhibited worldwide. Her previous books were West Coast: Homeland of Mist, and Releasing the Light. Her website is at www.carolevans.com. She lives on Salt Spring Island where she joins me from now. The Shores We Call Home is from Harbour Publishing. Please welcome to the Planta: On the Line program, Carol Evans; Good morning, Ms. Evans.
