The joy of Serendipity is captured on canvas at Redcliffe
We all know the joy of serendipity. The unexpected delight of bumping into an old friend, the spontaneous witness of nature's beautiful gifts or the genuine happiness of a peaceful nature walk. Redcliffe Art Society members know this too. What inspires each artist is purely individual. In their annual members' art exhibition for 2019 the artists are exploring this theme and providing a delightful display of what evokes this feeling in themselves. It is sure to resonate these wonderful feelings with all who witness this uplifting exhibition.
Coming up for air is the name of this artwork by Lynn Taylor.
