Portraits of Canadian Writers

In addition to mentoring and teaching, and finishing my new novel and writing short stories, my fun Covid project has been painting some incredible Canadian writers. I've always loved to draw and paint, but like everything else, there isn't always time, and for a long time I'd convinced myself that if I couldn't finish something it was better not to start, but I missed it. It's been so much fun combining two passions like this. (I used acrylic paint and canvas board or paper)

It's been such a pleasure and a joy to do.

Here are some of them.
