 STUDIO HOURS.  One afternoon of winter solitude and free to paint for personal pleasure.  Not a commission.  Not a lesson plan project.  
     For a long time I’ve wanted to sketch and paint this 1800’s Canadian woman.  It’s my acrylic/watercolor style interpretation of an oil painting which a pioneer artist did at a time when women in the arts were going against the current.  
     Thus the quotation I included on the canvas:  “Let the excellence of your work be your protest.”
     My friend Diana and I named her Francesca because she strikes us as a woman of Italian descent. 

 Our cottage during the snow and . . . .

my studio/classroom transformed into a dining room for our family Christmas dinner. Praise God from whom all blessings flow!
