Covid Creativity: 14Sep2021

by Olga Harhaj

Here is my recent oil painting of the historic Russell Harper House built in the 1860’s located in the hamlet of South Lancaster, Ontario.

I pass this house on my daily walks and have always admired it. I took a picture during one morning when the shadows and light were perfect for a painting.

Russell Harper was one of Canada’s great art historians and at one time the curator of the McCord Museum of Montreal.
