Dreaming in Colour
Local artist demonstrates raw and beautiful art Feb 22 to April 2 at the O'Connor Art Gallery
By Mary Main, CVAA
onna’s, or Donya’s art, is known as Visionary Art which is a title related to self-taught artists. Her creations are a result of her adaptations within a style known today as Modern Art.
Donna’s paintings are an expression of her feelings, using acrylic on canvas.
She begins by thinking about a subject she may have seen or imagined. They begin with bright colours and the brush strokes express a desire to highlight her vision of what lies within the abstract thought.
Whether that vision is
of an animal, a flower, or a person, the work is
meant to draw attention to the parts of the painting
that stir a feeling expressed by the colours and
elements that lie within.
Feelings of Colour
Open Noon to 5pm Wednesday to Saturday, and up to one hour before some shows.
Meet the artist Saturday, February 24, 1-4pm
O'Connor Art Gallery, 9201 Courbold St.
