Covid Creativity: 13Aug2021

by Bobi Leutschaft Poitras

On 22 February 2021, Tina Cairncross left this crazy world way too young.  She was a beautiful and talented woman who will be greatly missed by all who knew her. 

I painted this, the latest in my “Flowers for…” series, for her loving partner, Edwina.  [The tradition of painting “Flowers for . . .” started when Bobi’s brother died in 2015. Ed.]

Tina’s favourite flowers are depicted. In the background is a violin and bow, a tribute to Tina’s musical talent and contribution to Glengarry’s music scene.
