Diane’s lifelong interest in art has blossomed since retirement and the pandemic. Locally, over the years she has had inspiring guidance in the form of lessons or workshops from other Guelph area artists such as Leslie Miles, Scott Abbott, Barry McCarthy and most recently Yulia Balobanova. She currently works in Oil and Acrylics and has also spent many years working with stained glass. “I hope to convey the wonders of nature in my work”.
This Plein Air study was done August 15,2021 at Yorklands. The shuttered chapel is part of the former correctional centre complex of buildings. Unseen in this view, down the side of the building are found many boarded up windows. The chapel also sits within the tall barbed wire fenced area. Both of these I chose not to include, however they are key to the title of this painting “Lost Prayers”.
