Twister: Lynne McIlvride Studio Visit

Our friend Shelley Savor invited Bill and I to visit her friend Lynne McIlvride's Easter Art Show. McIlvride lives just outside Uxbridge, north of Toronto.
 It was an overcast spring morning with a hint of rain.
 Bright colours -- this must be the place.
 We were impressed by McIlvride's new studio
Lots of light and room inside.
McIlvride is well known for her brightly-coloured watercolour landscapes like this one. 
Neighbours Judith and Viktor Tinkl on the left.

Most recently, McIlvride has been creating a series of tornadoes. Here's A Disaster Waiting to Happen.

 Always nice to see pencil titles on plaster.

  1. Nice post about Lynne's Easter open house - her work is so vibrant and uplifting in the best 'tornado of thoughts way' - so glad you could join me.

  2. Thank you for inviting us to join you, Shelley. It was a perfect Good Friday excursion! Lynne's work is great!

  3. A palette of warm hues; imploding of warmth. Thank you for sharing.

  4. Glad you enjoyed the post and Lynne's work, seule771.
