Canada 150 Mosaic, "Canoe & Parka"


Immigrant Services Welcome Centre, Richmond Hill

 Dec. 2016

This is one of two panels Ruth painted for the "Canada 150 Mosaic". (It is the centre panel in the mural to the left.) Each artist created a painting within the overall painting - all with a Canadian theme. Up close, the parka reminds you of our cold winters; step back and you merely see the northern lake waters.
