A couple weeks ago I began to tackle this drawing. I fell in love with this photo when I came across it last year. It depicts a choir in Paraguay in the late 40's. Both my Oma and Opa were in this choir, and it is because of this choir that they met and fell in love. They toured all around their region. Music is important in my family, thanks to the influence of both my Oma and Opa.
I live in Southern Ontario on a farm with my husband, Dennis, and our two daughters. Painting out of my studio on our farm allows me to stay close to my family and to be surrounded by the natural landscape that continues to influence my work.
