#day8 This is a watercolour originally presented to the late Lois Hole, 15th Lieutenant Governor of Alberta. I worked for her for many years and this is one of my mementos of that time. Coincidentally, it was painted by Rita Wildschut, whom I had met and worked with in the Brooks Community Theatre group in the 80s, so I felt it was a fitting homage.

#day7 Something different. Back in 1990 I had a newly graduated fashion designer, who was working with me in the theatre, design and build an original outfit for L as a gift. She also gave me the original sketch and it has outlasted the original gift by many years.

#day6 We picked up this small piece c.2009 at a St Albert art show. It's labeled as mixed media but it's a print numbered 1/1, so I am not sure if it's a print of another piece or not. But no matter, we love it anyway. Orient (1/1) mixed-media print — Sophia Podryhula-Shaw #31daysofart #art #artists #artwork #beautiful #stalbert #prints #mixedmedia #artshows

#day5 I bought this at a street market in Quebec City in 2006. At first I thought it was formed leather and then realized it was completely made of paper. I always enjoy discovering and acquiring these sorts of little pieces both as art and as mementos.

#day4 This is a lovely sketch done for us by @sylvia_maxwell as a housewarming gift in 2000. I still delight in it's simplicity—it’s something I wish I could do better.

#day2 L has a penchant for collage and acquired these two beauties in 2001. Sylvia Grist is a collage and mixed-media artist originally from France. She has long been involved with Edmonton’s French arts community but she seems to have disappeared from the internet.
