From Dawn Until Dusk
This painting is dedicated to the pioneering spirit of every woman who has immigrated to Canada making it her new home. Uprooting a family and starting over in a new country has more than its share of trials and tribulations. Pioneer women frequently faced endless hours of mundane chores, such as laundry, which were essential to the health and well being of a family. Often it was a hard, thankless process requiring total focus and dedication to the dream of a fresh start and a new life.
Note: “From Dawn Until Dusk” was created as a triptych. The three panels are intertwined within the same frame.
Part of the Celebrating Women Collection, a series of original watercolour paintings created by Larisa Sambaliuk Cheladyn 2003 – 04 as a fundraising project for the National Council of Women of Canada. The series toured across Canada 2004 – 05.
