This is my tribute to a great Alberta Artist, Janet Mitchell who lived from 1912 - 1998. Her work was both beautifully light hearted and filled with childlike whimsy. She is a great inspiration to me.
I was also lucky enough to purchase a painting by her which i have posted here for you to see.
It is called "Head of Classics". I had such fun doing a Janet Mitchell style painting and hope to do a few more in a series which of course will be called "A Tribute To Janet Mitchell".
This one i did is 4" X 22" on 300lb. Arches CP paper.
Isn't this just a delightful painting? It is quite large and fits nicely over our fireplace.
She did it on a full sheet of watercolor paper and the framing and matting make it a nice size.
I enjoy looking at it each day. It is also one of very few original paintings that i own but hope
to continue collecting as the opportunities present themselves.
