The disappearing landscape has become a recurring theme, painted in oil or acrylic on canvas which is a return to the roots of her painting.

Virginia May ~ Blue and Gold 24" x 30" watercolour

Virginia May spent many years living and painting in Toronto where she focussed on watercolour, developing a detailed, realistic style that stressed strong composition and contrast. After moving to Caledon in 2002, her theme shifted to the disappearing landscape, which she interprets in oil or acrylic in a more impressionistic style. The move also led to her involvement with Artists Against the Mega Quarry and a contribution to an art book about historic Melville White Church. She is currently working on a book of historical stories about Toronto, featuring her paintings and photography of heritage buildings.
