Manotick Artist of the Month: "Building with florals" with Diane Washam

Diane Washam at her exhibit in the Manotick Branch Library

The month of March has arrived with the back order of snow still on the ground.  So why not head over to the Manotick Branch Library to view warm-coloured watercolours created by this month's Artist of the Month: Diane Washam.

"Tenement 18" and "Clothesline" by Diane Washam

Diane is a self-taught artist who has joined the Manotick Art Association a year ago.  She has been doing this form of art for about a decade, "Just playing and having fun" in her words.

As you can see, she has had plenty of fun, even with subjects that would be regarded otherwise as dull.
