Water Lillies

I live in a little old house built in 1869 in the rural town of Fergus Ontario. My art studio is in my living room looking out over the Grand River. Every morning I make a cup of hot tea, put on some good music and head out to my deck to see what the river is offering up today. It is a beautiful place to live and paint. A place of inspiration!
For the past fifteen years, I have been putting my energies into the art of watercolour. It seems that something magical happens each day as I pick up my brush and begin working with new ideas. I am grateful for this opportunity and hope that this energy is reflected in my work. I have tried many styles of watercolour techniques over the years and at this time I am most excited using the pouring technique. I have been teaching watercolour painting and drawing for several years. The challenge of teaching allows me many opportunities to try new techniques. I also teach outdoor watercolour sketching and journaling workshops. I am a graduate of Sheridan College in the Fine Arts. I am a graduate of Ontario Teachers College and have 18 years teaching experience. I am presently a third year student at OCAD (Ontario College of Art University) in Fine Arts in painting and Drawing. My latest project is teaching watercolour painting in Mexico.

GLASS ART OF MELANIE SCHAFFER

 

Melanie’s artwork expresses a unique viewpoint on the way she perceives ideas, subjects, objects and people. Her main objective is to find ways to evoke an evolving emotional connection between her artwork and the viewer.
Using symbolism, and always considering the human response, Melanie creates glass art that is intended to form a connection between people and their memories, history and experience. Melanie designs and creates original stained glass panels and windows using both copper foil and lead light techniques. With an aim to create unique and modern windows, the themes in her work, whether simplistic or complex, intend to create a talking point or to offer a point of reflection. Commissions are welcome.
Melanie's Studio on Water Street, Elora, will be on the Elora- Fergus Studio Tour.

TERRY GOLLETZ

No Place To Rest

Each painting has its own evolution. My concern is in creating a unified composition of colour and form which allows maximum participation of the viewers in the art work. Since the form does not represent an image that the viewer can immediately recognize and label, they are allowed to look inward to themselves to create with their own imaginations whatever their current mood moves them to create. The process of creating the work itself, which takes many hours of concentrated effort, is to me a meditative discipline.
