My locker door at school is full (both sides). It’s full with original pieces of art from some budding artists. I adore that they care enough to share these little bits of their imagination.
They light up when I take the minute to listen to their explanation of the colours and lines on the page. It’s such a treat be given these pieces of light. I’m grateful for being given these little treasures.
“Children need to know more about the world than just what they can learn through text and numbers. Art education teaches students how to interpret, criticize, and use visual information, and how to make choices based on it.” ~ Dr. Kerry Freedman, Head of Art and Design Education at Northern Illinois University.

A couple springs ago my hubby and I were wandering through the Botanical Gardens in the Niagara Parks, Niagara Falls ON. It was a stunningly beautiful day after a long cold winter. Spring’s first flowers were just starting to bloom; it was a wonderful day to take photos.
When I was wandering through paintings by Canadian artists I found several of birch trees. The painting that I’m highlighting today is by Susan Barnett-Jamieson.
Susan is from Burlington, Ontario, Canada. She says,
I try to capture a sense of simplicity and energy in my paintings. What I enjoy most about painting is the feeling of sinking happily into the process….
I love this painting by Susan Barnett-Jamieson. She indeed captured the energy of a Canadian spring day in this painting!
This post has stayed with me. I just had to share it with you. I hope that you enjoy it too.
This photo of the window that is at the ‘old’ entrance to the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto, Canada would be a better example of symmetry if the glass panes were the same colours on each side. However the pattern and the light is just stunning from the second floor balcony.
