            Peggy Colman’s children call her “The Tree Queen.” Her painting subjects include scenes, birds, and people—but she really loves doing birch trees.

            Colman paints canvasses of all sizes, but enjoys the large ones most of all. She incorporates

texture in her work by using a palette knife and other materials—and you can see an exhibit of her paintings throughout October in the Sheila Boyd Room at the Bobcaygeon Library (William and Canal Streets) during regular library hours.

            Peggy is a member of the Settler’s Village Art Group and The Lindsay Art Gallery. She started painting when she moved to Bobcaygeon from Richmond Hill, with lessons from a local artist and weekend courses at Gallery on the Lake.

            She says that people seem to really like her work.
