Lady of the Glade
"Lady of the Glade" was inspired by my first explorations of Canada outside of BC. Quite naturally, that led me to Alberta and what have become regular visits to Edmonton, Calgary and Red Deer. For any of you who have not been there, there is a very special moment - as you are driving out from the edge of the Rocky Mountains - when you enter Canada's great plains and realize that you have just encountered a new world. You can't help but look back, as the mountains disappear in the distance...replaced by farmland on small rolling hills, and wonder which is the dream and which is real.
"Lady of the Glade" is the closest I've gotten to capturing my love for Alberta's landscape. In many ways, it reminds me of home. She has done well in Alberta too, having earned a magazine cover birth with "Rising Women Magazine"; based out of Calgary. See www.risingwomen.com for details and a short bio of Olga and her work.
"Lady of the Glade" is a member of the third wave of the Feminine Spirit series and has won my heart completely. She can stand alone quite well, but pairs beautifully with "Serenity" or "Twirl" and most others of the FS series. As for where it should hang...I have trouble thinking of a place not to hang it.
The original piece was done using an acrylic ink paint on watercolor paper. The technique is very similar to watercolor but tends to keep more vibrant hews and dries permanently to the paper.
