Lady E.

Lady E.   12x12 acrylic

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.
