A while back, we mentioned the second annual The River Rocks plein air event in downtown Idaho Falls. Gertrude Hudson, who lives in Idaho, was the winner of a ThumBox that we donated for the event. The link shows several of her plein air paintings. A link from that page shows her in 1950 as a second-year art student, painting a wildlife mural in Heritage Hall on the campus of the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology (SAIT), Calgary, Alberta, and in 2005 painting a companion wildflower mural.
"The life out there stirs renewed life within me and brings out energy I often don't realize I have." - Gertrude Hudson
