Mountainaire Avian Rescue Society (MARS) received a donation on Dec. 1 from artist Sharon Lennox, of an original oil painting on canvas of the organization’s ambassador barred owl, Shakespeare.
The painting is a rendering of one of their favourite and well known ambassadors and MARS was thrilled to receive it. At their recent event at Whyte’s Framing and Gallery in the Comox Valley, the painting was prominently displayed and another local artist fell in love with it, offering $1,200, which was happily accepted. Lennox has also painted another portrait of Shakespeare, which is for sale on her website through www.myartclub.com.
Lennox has lived on Vancouver Island since 1974 and resides in Royston. She works hard at developing her personal style on everything she paints; as a result she has won numerous awards. Oil is her medium but she has been exploring acrylic paints, recently.
