Orchids For Candace

Self Portrait

Cheryl Todd Shergold Self Portrait
A self portrait completed referencing an image of myself that was taken in 1987. The world seemed to be a simpler place. We didn't seem to realize what our blatant disrespect of nature would cost us. I painted this portrait to show the sadness I feel that we, as a society, and all of our knowledge...still are not listening to Mother Nature.

Gorilla House and Friends

On October 16th I went to Gorilla House Live Art to go see my painter friend Kathleen Moors. I am always in awe of the community of artists that connect in the house! Kathleen is one of those people that makes you feel as though you have been friends forever! I was blessed and won both of her pieces in the live auction! I have given her great people a home and permanent place in my studio. I am hoping to get to know their spirits on a higher level!

Affirmation Cards

Today's task was to make affirmation cards to place in my creative space. I "up-cycled" some older watercolour adventures for the cause! I am off today to go buy a clothesline and clothes pins so that I can hang them in my space! I am truly enjoying this e-course!

A loving Self Portrait


One of the tasks for the online E-course I am taking was to post a self portrait on Instagram and Facebook. So why not here? Hello world...this is me!
