Women's Art Association of Hamilton

WAAH Online Exhibition Autumn

The third season of the year that goes by two names: fall and autumn. It's a time when crops and fruits are gathered and leaves fall, in the northern hemisphere from September to November. It's a time for cooling temperatures and a freshness in the air, brilliant colours and fall fairs.

Contributing artists for the 2019 Autumn Online Exhibition are arranged alphabetically by surname: Lisa MacDonald, Frances O'Flynn, Maria Sarkany, Anita Thomas.

Lisa MacDonald

I started painting in 2010 after finishing a 42-week on-line art certificate course with Cindy Wider, at drawpj.com. Being of a somewhat compulsive, obsessive nature, art quickly became the one thing I wanted to do every day, all day to the exclusion of almost everything else.

This lovely fall elm tree is still standing by the Raisin River reflecting it's beauty in the water below.

Fall Glow

  • Acrylic
  • 14" x 11"
  • $175

This started out as a warm fall sky, the land details are just that details. The rich glow of orange sunset sets the whole scene on fire.

Glengarry Fall

  • Acrylic
  • 14" x 11"
  • $175

This is an actual farm field east of Martintown, in eastern Ontario. The beautiful fall colors in the trees and the fields are so inviting.

Maria Sarkany

Maria's intention is to shine a light on some of the beautiful aspects of life in her urban and rural local community. The titles of her work are carefully selected to give a key to the meaning-intention of the artwork. The fluidity of the brushwork reflects her conviction of the interconnectedness of all living creatures of the world. The artist reserves the right to let the artwork speak for it's self.

Anita Thomas

Anita Thomas is an artist and a photographer, with passions laying in aerial, aviation, landscape and street photography. Originally from Toronto, with a background in the fashion industry, she has lived in the City of Hamilton since 2004. The arts and creative world have long been a part of her life, beginning with painting and illustrating from a very young age. She has always favoured dramatic styles, is drawn to bold looks and unusual interpretations — art that leads one to carefully study the details, find something new or uncover that which was previously hidden. Her aerial photography, always shot from a Cessna 172, often culminates in a curiosity-driven treasure hunt every time she flies.

Hilly Forest in Autumn

The Grand River winds its way through forest, cities and towns, 280 KM total from its source near Wareham, Ontario to Lake Erie near Dunnville.

Tews Falls in Autumn
