Janet K. MacKay is a sculptor and painter working out of Worldview Studio and Gallery of Fine Art, located in Ottawa, Ontario. Her oil-on-canvas paintings are vibrant and distinctly Canadian, currently focussing on the dazzling reflections of boats on water — from canoes and kayaks to fishing vessels. Janet has participated in numerous solo and group shows and enjoys these opportunities to see, first hand, that spark of connection her art can make with its audience.
'25-Year Journey' was commissioned as a wedding anniversary gift: a beautiful reflection of their time together as a couple. The commemorative gift was given without fuss or fanfare, no party or evening out on the town to mark the occasion. The painting was hung on the wall while her husband was out walking the dog and surprised him with it upon his return. Sometimes, a simple unexpected gesture is all that love requires...

25 year Journey
It was the best jig saw puzzle I have ever completed, in my 70+ years of putting pieces together. I loved the challenge of the uniquely shaped pieces. The finshed product was bright with vivid colors and realistic activity very well illustrated. I would buy many more but I can't really afford to do that. I'll look for someone who might want to exchange.
I have been doing puzzles for many year and this was by far my best experience. The shapes of the pieces added an unexpected artistic quality that I have not yet experienced in any other puzzle!! Like a good book, I was sad to finish. On a positive side, I can now find another puzzle and perhaps with even greater challenge.
