The prairies lost artist William Perehudoff recently. Mary had already started writing me the card seen below – illustrated by Perehudoff’s wife, and artist in her own right, Dorothy Knowles – when she found this news clipping. I can’t recall if I’ve mentioned to Mary that I have a degree in art history. This is why I am immensely enjoying her letters and clippings. She is obviously an art lover herself and is so knowledgeable about the amazing artists of the prairies where she has lived her life. I wonder if or when I’ll ever get back to Saskatchewan….
