Enchanted #1


Oil on Canvas, 10 x 8 ins, Copyright Wendie Donabie 2013 Wilson Falls Trail that runs along the Muskoka River in Bracebridge is one of my favourite hikes.

Breath of Life


Acrylic on Canvas, 48 x 36 inches Copyright Wendie Donabie 2014 Without trees, there would be no life on our planet.
