Recently, as a fundraiser, the volunteers for the Art Etc. Shop in the Burlington Art Gallery gathered their favourite potluck recipes into a cookbook illustrated on every page with images of works by artists represented in the shop. Proceeds go towards promoting and supporting the Art Gallery of Burlington and its artists.
Three of my oil pastel paintings and four watercolours by Barry Coombs, my partner, are included. Yay. And I love the recipes.
Split Rail Fence, Dufferin County 20″ x 28″
Some of my pastel paintings and pen and ink drawings are available to rent or purchase through the Art Etc. Gallery Shop, at the Burlington Art Centre, 1333, Lakeshore Road, Burlington. I’m pleased to be included in a collection of original works by established and emerging Canadian artists.
My subject here is a split rail or snake fence, that I found just outside Orangeville, in Dufferin County, Ontario. These picturesque and durable fences are constructed of white cedar that grows in swampy areas throughout Ontario, especially where there is limestone under the soil.
