It’s not hard to guess Marilyn Weiss’s favourite colour. Red shows up in pretty much all of Marilyn’s art works, whether it’s the under-painting of a boreal forest scene, the sky above a Nutana alley, or one of her well-known poppy paintings. Marilyn takes regular sketching trips to northern Saskatchewan and other locations, especially in the fall and spring, her favourite times of the year. The sketches she makes on site serve as a foundation for larger works completed in her studio. She is looking forward to our open studio day on November 27, where she will be painting and talking to our visitors.
