Artist Tricia MacNeil Baldwin has created “A Whimsical World”, a quirky, colourful world of imaginary places, inspired by the world around us. This series of paintings is inspired by a friend who had terminal cancer but chose to live every day to the fullest. She was full of life, love, laughter and friendship.
Tricia explains “One evening I started to paint as I was thinking of her and out came the first painting of the series ‘Happy Town’ full of bright colours, simple but fun structures created to make one happy. I gave her this piece, she loved it and so the series was born.”
Tricia’s hope with this whimsical series, is that everyone who sees it, enjoys the fun, the colours and the simplicity of this world. A world simply created to make one smile and to appreciate the simple things in life, especially when the world around you can get confusing and overwhelming.
“A Whimsical World” is at the Guild in Charlottetown through April 9.
