Wendie’s Paintings at www.wendiedonabie.com
Poetry, short stories, paint, ink, brushes and a vivid imagination fill my creative toolbox. My love of language – alliteration, metaphor and simile drive my passion to write and when words won’t do the job, I turn to my easel and a fresh canvas.
As a writer and visual artist, I’ve learned a picture is truly worth a thousand words. Painting allows me to communicate my experience of the world in a way that words cannot. Most often, the endless beauty of Muskoka, Ontario, provides the inspiration for my acrylic, watercolour, oil and Chinese Ink paintings.
When I paint, time loses all meaning, and, as if by magic, the brush draws forth images hidden in the fibres. My goal is to communicate realistic-impressions that entice the viewer to enter into the painting and experience what I’ve painted in his or her own unique way.

This year you’ll find my work in two Muskoka Galleries. I was invited to submit a collection of my paintings to The Dabbling Duck Gallery in Port Carling, open from the May long weekend until the Canadian Thanksgiving Weekend. And I was accepted into the Arts at the Albion Artists’ Cooperative Gallery in Gravenhurst where my paintings and cards will be available all year round.
In July, I participated in the one-day Gravenhurst Art Crawl and will be in the Baysville Arts & Crafts Festival, August 13 & 14 in Baysville, Ontario.
During the first half of the 2016, I showed work in other juried shows in Midland, Huntsville and Bracebridge.
Throughout the year, I continue to keep a rotating selection of work at RE/MAX North Country in Gravenhurst, as well as Oliver’s Coffee Shop on Manitoba Street and Tea Infusion on Wellington Street, both in Bracebridge.
From August 18-November 14, my Painting, River of Heaven, will be part of the Muskoka Arts and Crafts Show at the Canada Summit Centre in Huntsville.
Then on October 1, to participate in CULTURE DAYS, I will be an artist in the window painting at Up North Games, on Main Street in Huntsville.
More updates will be provided as bookings are made. Stay tuned!
And thanks for stopping by.
