In memory of Janet

This past week Janet Twigg Patterson quietly farewelled her stay on this earth.  Janet was an acknowledged master of the Chinese brush style of painting. She was also a wonderful teacher who shared her talents and skills with students from all walks of life. She was a woman of strong opinions but she was also incredibly kind and gentle. Janet contributed to the richness of the life of her community wherever she lived.

A beautiful buddhist ceremony was held to celebrate Janet's life. It was an honour to farewell her with her family and friends.

While meditating on the times shared with Janet in her studio and feeling thankful for having had the good fortune to meet and get to know her,  I did this little painting.

You can have a look at some of Janet's beautiful art at her website, the Red Crane Gallery.
