The Joy of Making Art
By Nerissa Coronel Pineda
Mississauga-Ontario-Canada
Sat 22nd October 2011

Last October 14 to 16, the husband and wife team of Frank and Nelia Tonido presented their art at Visual Arts Mississauga.  The 30 paintings were a graceful mix of landscapes, still lifes, and portraits, done in the different mediums of watercolours, acrylics and coloured pencils.      

Looking at Nelia’s paintings, I was constantly reminded not just of the beauty of nature but also of its impermanence-- a cherry that was insect bitten, birds’ leftovers.  Flowers with fading colours, leaves curled and dying.  Her landscapes also had a nostalgic appeal, evoking genteel times.  Two paintings captured my fancy – but alas, they were sold -- “Sauteed Squash Shoots and Flowers," and "The Agawa Canyon Train Ride."

Niagara-on-the-Lake (NOTL) is lovely any time of the year, but it is loveliest and most welcoming in the summer.

Its delights have not been lost to the members of the Philippine Artists Group.  After all, NOTL has been described as the most beautiful town in Canada, with its heritage homes, flower-filled and tree-lined streets, parks, tempting shops, charming inns, and bucolic wineries.  It has always attracted artists, as well as tourists.
