Dorothy Clark McClure, of Aurora, teaches art throughout York Region; she is an accomplished artist who accepts commissions from the corporate and private sectors. Since 1992, she has been working on a new art form - "intuitive painting" - which she describes as an "amazing and beautiful new way to paint."
Artist statement on reverse: "Re Intuitive Painting #35/1995: This is my first Rt. Brain painting using dropped colour and manifested images. It is most interesting to see that the images have appeared here (magically) in a larger scale than previous smaller works and the usual exciting compositional qualities and intriguing messages. Comments re "Eagle, owl, butterfly transformation" (Intuitive watercolor with ink)=GREAT POWER. The Triad of colors (Red Blue Yellow) used in this painting have materialized as 3 air creatures within the overall image of a butterfly which expresses the art of transformation. Interestingly owl (deception) is called Night Eagle by some Ameri-Indian tribes. Owl is also known for Wisdom and Treachery, Eagle is the most powerful spirit who "appeared" here. Hopi believe he is the intermediary between divine and human. Eagle feathers are considered sacred tools. DCMcClure."

"Triad: raw sienna, alig. madder light and WN. ultra blue ink."

Language of Item:
In 1987 the Newmarket Public Library was very fortunate to be the beneficiary of a donation intended for works of art and books relating to art by Dorothy and Jim Bowman and their daughter Carol Bowman. The funds were invested in trust for this purpose until 1998 when a collection of works of art was selected and purchased to form a permanent gallery in the Library.
