Charlotte Williams has lived in Oro-Medonte for the past 12 years and has discovered an area of the world that speaks to her with its incredible beauty and tranquility. She has tried to portray this in her watercolour and acrylic paintings of the area introducing her own ideas and imagination into the landscapes she sees around her. She has used backgrounds of gold to produce rich and deeply layered portrayals of the forests and fields of this area, an idea she derived from iconography where gold is used to represent heaven.
BY ROBERT FROST
When I see birches bend to left and right
Across the lines of straighter darker trees,
I like to think some boy's been swinging them.
But swinging doesn't bend them down to stay
As ice-storms do. Often you must have seen them
Loaded with ice a sunny winter morning
After a rain. They click upon themselves
As the breeze rises, and turn many-colored
As the stir cracks and crazes their enamel.
Soon the sun's warmth makes them shed crystal shells
Shattering and avalanching on the snow-crust—
Such heaps of broken glass to sweep away
You'd think the inner dome of heaven had fallen.
