Pat Shepherd

1. Colour Alpaca

2. On The Road Again

3. Signed Otterly Amazing

4. The Bird

5. You Left it There

I started painting animals in oil because I was frustrated learning how to do landscapes without lessons! They seem to make people smile. 
Since everyone needs a lift right now, thought I’d send these along.

The Unseen

 

Because of the unseen virus

We have all been sent to our rooms

To contemplate what we have done

The Almighty with Mother Nature

Are joined together to teach a lesson

How to behave, love one another

No matter creed, race or colour

Time to appreciate the gifts given to us

The abundance and beauty of the earth

To reap and share, with each other

To respect the abundance in the sea

To preserve and cherish our life

Not bomb and destroy one another

In the pursuit of possessions and greed

Tolerate each other’s belief in an Almighty

Christ, God, Buddha, Allah or any other

For when we reach the great beyond

We will, all be joined together in spirit

So please let’s all just learn to get along.

4. The Path

5. The River

I hope you are all keeping well and enjoying this warm weather.


I’m still keeping my brushes busy.  Here are a few samples of the results.  I’m so looking forward to when our lives can get back to some semblance of normal.  I miss the contact with all my artists friends but the upside is that we can use our time creatively.

Thank You Essential Workers

Street art? Graffiti? Chalk on the pavement?

What do you think it is?

It is written on the street, but is it art? The creators took time to choose different colours, to map out the size of letter that would best fit the width of the available space, and to choose a font that is aesthetically pleasing and eminently legible to a driver moving at 40Kmh. Add to that that the message is well chosen, and socially pertinent, and I think it qualifies as ART.

Graffiti? This is a can of worms that cannot be opened here – but I shall write a blog for this website to talk about it!

ThankYou-SCREEN

Elisa Sbrolla

She is a young artist from Sant’Elpidio, Italy, who has a cousin in Willow Beach. When she saw our virtual gallery on the website, she sent a photo of her work  hoping to put a smile on our face.

The isolation is difficult for the Italians so they turn to art, just like us here, in Georgina. Maybe our artists get inspired by this funny art which combines paint and  vegetables!

Grazie mille Elisa !

Thelma Sellers
 
Here is an abstract painting of Gross Morne National Park in Newfoundland. 
 
I was fortunate to do a workshop with an amazing abstract artist just before the pandemic hit and I love what I created from my photo of the Western Brook Pond taken in June last year.  The painting is in my March show which is still hanging at the Aurora Town Hall.

The Smile
 
This is a 96 year old woman I met in El Salvador in January.
 
I was with a Rotary group which was there on a mission to help build homes in a poor community, Two of us went to a local nursing home, to take some food staples.
 
This lady was sound asleep in her wheelchair, but woke just long enough to give us a smile (then went right back to sleep!)
