Donna Munro is the owner of PWL. She is a lover of family heritage and value, having focused her life strengths on studying Literature and Science for her younger life. She has found her roots and family meaning within Scottish and English culture. The start of the collection is focused on releasing family art to print.

The first artist Donna has profiled is her great-great-grandfather James Wharton, who was one of the first of the family pioneers to settle in Manitoba just as its communities opened up for settlement. Unfortunately, James Wharton spent most of his time working to get a nicer home for his wife, and did not have time to return to art when he came to the prairies.

Donna painted the James Wharton drawings based on gallery feedback that color sells and her own preference for color. The first sets done have been done to show the authenticity of the paper near the edges, the second being perhaps easier to frame eliminating paper edges, and the next set will now be colored.

A set of classics has been made with intention of building an exhibition collection. She is aiming to make large file sizes to be used in larger buildings to adorn museums and corporate places.

The second artist profiled is her grandmother Elna Brodie Niccolls, who was a committed family historian and who hand copied 8 or more of her books to give to family for a very meager wage. Elna was an artist, photographer, and writer. Most of her efforts using these skills were for pleasure and for supporting her roles as a wife and mom. She made photographs to record all the family and life moments she wanted to remember forever.

Donna just released an Indian Princess her grandmother originally drew. She restored it, drew in more details, painted it digitally, and prepared it for print. She theorizes that her grandmother saw the First Nations Princesses perform at her day's stampedes: either in Brandon or Moosejaw.
Donna has added her skill to these art restorations by redrawing over faded lines, color enhancing, darkening, and adding to the simpler images to make them appeal to a wider audience. Her favorite James Wharton print is Meeting at the Docks.

The collections you will find here are based on idea concepts: cotton like clouds, sunsets and sunrises, cute houses, birds, events, pastoral scenes (with reflections in water), historical art, people of import to the artist: Elna Brodie Niccolls collection, and James Wharton's collection. Somehow being from Calgary, Donna felt there should be some photos from the Western provinces with her work. She has taken photos during her trip west to collect her grandma's things to fill in the gaps. She hopes you love ducks, horses, cows and mountainscapes. Donna hopes to achieve at least 15 selections per collection, enough to permit someone to have about five matching or concept related prints. Some work is being designed with intent to go with show homes.

Please visit new images at a gallery "New 2013 Images".

On your return visit, please visit the gallery displays.

Once my visitors have finished the visit for FAA art, and Donna would certainly not want to interrupt that venture here on Fine Art America, then please visit her on Amazon.com. Donna's author page is: http://www.amazon.com/-/e/B0069TK60A
