Bernice Snowden

Bernice Snowden 1951 - 2007

Tonight I found out that Bernice had died on March 7th. Bernice and I met in a drawing forum in WetCanvas and shared private messages and insider jokes, both of us being in Atlantic Canada. Bernice was a kind, gentle person with a wonderful talent in the art world. We both participated in drawing challenges as well as classes and both chose tomatoes as our demons of choice in a coloured pencil class with Cynthia Brunk.

Bernice will be missed by many people but the product of her work is her legacy.

Her last posting of a drawing - Angel Lamp - seems somewhat poignant now. And one of my favourite drawings of hers - Chrysanthemum - is here.
