McMichael Gallery - First Choice Award

Shackleton painting en plein air.

I created a painting onsite at McMichael Canadian Art Collection as part of the McMichael En Plein Air Painting Competition. 42 artists were selected from across Ontario to set their easels on the McMichael’s grounds and capture the magnificent landscape.
