AN EXHIBIT OF PAINTINGS WITH A THEME BY MEMBERS OF AQUANET ART
Presents de la Terre / Presents from Mother Nature
"Presents de la Terre / Presents from Mother Nature"
15 high x 21 inches wide
transparent watercolour on Arches 140 lb rough paper

Mother Nature gives us so many wonderful things! This painting was made about the "Give" and " Generosity" concepts. One teacher was very important to me in University: Gaetan Grondin made these pottery with nice terra cotta given by Nature and I am also very grateful to him for his generous lessons about art and life. We benefit so much from the Earth, let us take good care about it. Website: www.lorrainedietrich.com

Grierson Woods has special meaning to a dear friend of mine. I painted this scene for her a few years back as a gift for her birthday.

This is my last painting in 2013 I wanted to do two images in one painting , so i covered up the paper with a few strips of masking tape and painted the forest first , after completion i covered the painting with tape leaving the white strips to do the hands .

I began doing paintings to make into our annual holiday cards. I loved how challenging the bow was, and black and white and red is such a amazing colour theme. I had fun thinking about these little salt & pepper shakers dreaming of what was inside that huge present! :)
