in the beginning
I was born a prairie girl. It stays with you for life no matter how far you travel or how long you are away. There is a connection with the open sky and the dark rich earth that runs through your soul.
I have lived a long time away from the prairies of yellow wheat and blue flax and small towns and big skies. I have lived in five of ten provinces in Canada and have travelled to all except the territories . I love all that Canada is and all it has to offer us if we open ourselves to its gifts.
The photo above is of Sally [ Black striped ] and Harry [ orange & white] ; in my studio .... and I did at one time get cat hairs in all my paintings; they lived with me for 17 years in Cat's Cottage on the North Shore of Vancouver..... [ The black bear in the back keeps us company ].... [ Footnote: Both of my best art critics left me in 2014 but their energy is here in this cottage urging me on in the studio and I still feel their love and devotion]
