This is a painting from several years ago. I made it after attending a terrific workshop with Mike Svob. He had a great affect on my interest in bright colors. Mike is certainly not a beige kinda guy. I've grown so fond of this painting and the fact that it signaled a significant direction in my style that she has become part of my permanent collection. Pinkie is currently watching over me in the kitchen.
Lady Elizabeth Bruce, wife of Randolph Bruce was enthusiastically
welcomed to the community. In reading old newspaper articles, it appears that
Lady Elizabeth was an active and valued member of the local society, hosting
parties and the Red Cross Society of Canada meetings at her Wilmer home. Pynelogs was
built for her. Sadly, she passed away before she could live there.
The relaxed and open feeling of the photograph as she
enjoyed her garden in the lovely summer sunshine inspired this painting.
I am an acrylic painter exploring color and texture. I like horses, Canadian wildlife, old trucks, bold women, kind men, tequila and cashews. Most paintings are for sale. Contact me for prices and shipping if you are interested in purchasing a painting. And thanks for viewing my blog!
