12" x 16", Watercolour on Arches, CAN$550.00 Framed - Available for Sale
I have nursed and painted older adults for many years. This inspiring and resilient woman has overcome many challenges during her long. She is elegant; confident yet humble. She sat for me while confronting her latest hurdle of losing her precious vision. She survived becoming a widow with young children, a new immigrant, English speaking, poor and an artist. I couldn't help but detect a shadow of resignation as the darkness leaves her nothing but memories of beauty.
