Eleanor Joy McDonald

     The high realism achieved by Eleanor gives one the illusion of looking at real life, not an image on canvas.
     Reared on a dairy farm edged by woods and creek near Woodstock, Ontario, Eleanor has been acutely aware of the sights and sounds of nature since earliest childhood. This awareness of God's creation is exquisitely expressed on each canvas.
     When Eleanor and Lloyd's three children were in grade school, Eleanor began formal art training in London prior to leaving for Bonaire, Caribbean Netherlands, to serve with Trans World Radio. Upon returning to Canada in 1984, Eleanor studied landscape painting with Kitchener artist, Mike Roth. Techniques in depicting wildlife were enhanced at seminars with renowned artists at Gallery-on-the-Lake, Buckhorn.
     A solo exhibition of her work took place in 1996 in Waterloo. Paintings have been entered in several juried exhibitions and art venues in southwestern Ontario, and are treasured in homes throughout North America.
