Lynda Schneider Granatstein: Paintings of the Chez Doris Calendar and Recent Work

Lynda Schneider Granatstein was introduced by her daughter, Tamara, and then proceeded to  astound us with her beautiful artworks and an amazing succession of inspirational happenings: being allowed to go backstage at Place des Arts to gather material for a series on ballet dancers, winning a contest to receive free floral arrangements for a year and then producing artwork from them and turning these into a calendar to benefit “Chez Doris”, and then being chosen for the  artists-in-residence program at the Banff Centre, where her only obligation was to produce artwork. Outcome: a lot of hard work and a lot of great work produced!
