There certainly is a lot of hype surrounding ‘mindfulness’ these days—and for good reason with the hustle and bustled of our quick-paced lives. Grey County provides an awe-inspiring array of rich colours, sounds, smells and textures throughout the four seasons to practice mindfulness. Any patch of nature that captures your senses will do, be it the sun’s rays dancing through rustling trees, a warm breeze enveloping you, or an orchestra of crickets in tangled wild flowers.
To mark 20 years of drawing and painting, Elaine Davidson has curated an exhibit for the Owen Sound Artists’ Legacy Gallery, featuring mixed media paintings and watercolours.
Elaine is a self-taught artist with her beginnings in watercolour and drawings. Currently, her main focus is mixed media paintings of figures, landscapes, still lives and interiors. Illustrated Journaling has been a main stay for her since 1998, morphing into the making and selling of her own journals with original mixed media/collage covers.
Elaine draws inspiration from the beautiful countryside that surrounds her church studio and living space, were she shares her mixed media techniques and tricks by hosting “Funshops”.
Elaine is a full time member of the Owen Sound Artist Co-op where she successfully sells and displays her work.
