Shannon Reynolds 
Baltimore Oriole in Magnolia, oil on board, 12 x 12"

We are very pleased to now be representing Kitchener, Ontario artist, Shannon Reynolds. Shannon is a portrait artist who works primarily in oil on panel. When she is not painting portraits Shannon paints "readily available subjects in my purview." These subjects can include the "abundant wildlife in my urban backyard, the fleeting spectacle of flowers as they come into bloom, the seasonal food on my plate, and the landscape around me." Baltimore Oriole in Magnolia is a painting of just one of the many birds Shannon sees in her garden.

We have several new paintings by Stratford artist, David Sharpe, who is back outside painting the countryside around Stratford. Morning Light was painted on a weekend painting trip to nearby Elora, Ontario.
