It’s surprisingly strange how an isolating pandemic has managed to bring people closer together. Although we may not be able to see each other in person, we are reminded of the traditions passed on for many generations.
Margie Lewis is an artist who tells stories with her paintings speaking to the culture, traditions, people, history and beautiful landscapes of Newfoundland and Labrador.
She has primarily been creating acrylic paintings during this time.
Below in her own words, Margie describes the inspiration for her acrylic painting titled “The Lord is my shepherd.”
“During this COVID-19 pandemic I am reminded of how my mother turned to prayer during troubling times. In this painting you will see an elderly man reading scriptures during hotel isolation.”
