In the Spotlight
This week the Spotlight is on Marla Blackwell. Although the prairie and the grain fields were her home as a child, she was drawn to the foothills and beautiful tree land west of Calgary, Alberta. Marla has a passion for the landscape and expresses it in her paintings. "There is endless inspiration and tranquility right here in this great land of ours".
Marla paints in a style which encompasses traditional to the abstract. Her desire is to pass on and impact the viewer with the same emotion she feels as she creates each piece of art.
