Zann Hemphill was awarded an honourable mention at the Nanaimo Fine Art Show this year for her painting "Complaints About the Weather".
"Complaints About the Weather” 12”x12” Oil on Canvas
"Our neighbours' cat, a lovely friendly tuxedo-clad Tom named Bolt, used to sun himself on our doormat. Once, I saw him caught there in the rain. He didn't make a fuss about it, but something about the way he expressed his indignation at the sky, the puddles, the inconvenience of the whole thing, just had to be painted."
