Wood a self-trained artist who started as a draftsperson started her painting work in oils.
However “about six years ago I switched to acrylic” Wood says explaining she’d taken a course in acrylics at the Haliburton Fleming College campus which houses the Haliburton School of Art and Design.
“I liked the acrylic I think because it was so easy to use” she says. “The colour the vibrancy.”
And Wood hasn’t looked back using liquid acrylics ever since to create her colourful works.
Wood specializes in landscapes natural as well as industrial working from photographs she takes.
“I travel a lot” she says. “My husband and I travel by motorcycle.”
Last year they did America’s famous Route 66.
“Arizona . . . it’s just stunning” Wood says adding it’s somewhere she’d like to return to.
The paintings in the show feature scenes that will be familiar to many county residents – Furnace Falls Ritchie Falls the rapids along the Gull River.
The show runs until Aug. 5.
