Bill Schwarz

Roof Tops, 36 x 40, oil on canvas

This wonderful Bill Schwarz oil painting, which is the focal point of our Christmas window, is an interesting jumble of houses and roof tops. Like most of Bill's paintings it makes us smile whenever we look at it.

Bonnie Steinman

October, coloured pencil on stained paper. 

Stratford artist, Bonnie Steinman's picture October, is a beautifully layered work of art. Bonnie began the work by staining her paper with fall leaves, a process that involved steaming the leaves and paper. After her paper was stained she drew the berries and twigs with attached leaves on top of the stained leaves.
