Lila Lewis Irving | A Note From Mary Louise White

Generosity of Spirit is the bedrock of Lila’s teaching.  She gives completely and unhesitatingly.

Sometimes just being in her presence is enough.

Watching her paint is breath taking and engaging – like watching an opera unfold.

Lila’s exercises in composition are invaluable. Her marriage of this structure with fluid spontaneous from the gut movement of paint is a powerful lesson in learning to dance with perfect balance between making it happen and letting it happen.

During critique sessions, Lila’s chant: “do you see it” is still with me as I examine my own work. Guiding us to learn to see has been a great gift.

– Mary Louise White, St Thomas, Ontario
