Landscape and still like paintings in oil and watercolour

Is it “la joie de vivre” that Renoir often referred to when he talked about painting wonderful, quiet, joyful subjects because there’s enough chaos in the world? How lucky are we to find this lifelong GIFT! How unfortunate is it that some of us possess the gift but choose not to use it because they are blinded by fear. For fear is failure. To paint is to be human. To paint is to breathe life into your subject. To paint is to connect with one’s spirit, one’s soul. This is the harmony of life itself, which I believe IS “the gift”. To celebrate the smallest things in life only to find their deeper meaning and then share it with others… is the greatest gift of all.



Elora Fergus Studio Tour


Here’s your chance to get a look behind the scenes. Take a self-guided tour and meet artists where they live and work. Many artists and craftspeople will open their studios for two consecutive fall weekends.

The Studio Tour is completely free of charge. You’ll get a chance to meet directly with the artists, and often see work not shown in gallery settings. You’ll visit the working spaces of both established and emerging artists, from basements to self contained studios
