Acrylic painting by Barb Sawicki
In the summer of 2012, in a dollar store in Bracebridge, my love of  painting began. With dollar store canvas, paints and brushes in hand, I returned to the family cottage and  started to put paint to canvas.
Spending all my life’s summers in Muskoka, I have unending, breathtaking  inspirational views.  In the colours of the glorious Muskoka sunsets, the  endless bays and inlets, magnificent rocks and the pine trees that sit askew  from the wind, I’m always excited to attempt to capture the vast wildness with paints.   I am also  blessed  to be surrounded by such beauty in all the hills, trees, streams that are at my doorstep, here in Orangeville.
 It is my hope, that I can continue to learn and in some way, put the beauty of my little corner of the earth on canvas, for myself and others to enjoy.
