About This Work
“This painting ‘The Sunny Side of the Street’ is a painting of a home in Jordan Station. The Main St. there seems as if you are stepping back in time. The sun and shadows on the home attracted me immediately. These past two years have been a difficult time for all of us. I want my paintings to express all of the pent up energy and longing for a better time that we have been holding inside. Enjoy!”



Hamilton born, Donna is a mostly self-taught artist. She is an elected member of the Canadian Society of Painters in Watercolour since 2006. She studied with well-known artists Bryan Atyeo, Charles Reid and Tony van Hasselt. One of her paintings was purchased by Queen's Park for their archive. Donna is represented in Hamilton by Earls Court Gallery and in Burlington at the Art Gallery of Burlington.
