I just received an email from someone I met at McMichael Gallery Art Sale a couple of years back.

Here’s what she said:

“Quite simply, you are inspirational.

I am also a grade 3/4 teacher and part of our Social Studies curriculum is to learn about the different physical regions of our country. I enjoy turning to the Group of Seven to do so. After meeting you, I decided to have my students learn from your work as well.

Later this month, our whole school will be transformed into an Art Gallery and we have decided to hang the art we created while inspired by your pieces. Attached is a photo of a few examples of our work.”
