Remembering Doris McCarthy

A great Canadian has passed away....Doris McCarthy was an amazing artist who lived every moment of her 100 years. I had the privilege of watching her paint as "Artist in Residence" at  the McMichael Canadian Art Collection in 1999. She was only 89, removed her high heels in order to paint a very large canvas. She kept running back to view the painting from a distance.  More energy than most people half her age. She will be missed.

"Enjoy every minute and each day. 
It will only come once."  
Doris McCarthy 1910 to 2010
