Peonies by Lynda Sellar
An art instructor once told her that drawing and painting can be learned: they don’t spring entirely from some innate talent. Lynda pursued that idea beginning with excellent instruction in Northumberland—drawing with Stephen Snider and watercolour painting with the late Martha Robinson. Herb Jung continues to provide critiques and encouragement.
Lynda prefers working en plein air with nature as the subject—flowers, forests, lakes and sea from Canada’s coast-to-coast majesty. Travel provides the chance to make postcards and miniatures of treasured scenery in France and Italy.
As her young friend from the big city once remarked, “In Port Hope, every day feels like Sunday.”
