Crystal Beshara is a Canadian contemporary realist painter, illustrator and art instructor living and working in Ottawa.
"Have a peak at my journal entries as I observe & explore my world with paint & paper. Whether I am recording the simple progress of what’s growing in my flower garden, lazing about in my hammock in Mexico or I’m writing about my instructional workshops abroad; from doodles while enjoying High Tea in Yorkshire with my students to sketching the lily pads in Monet’s Garden in Giverny – you ‘ll find out what I’m up to right now and where I’ve been - Have a peek at some of my videos and learn a few techniques & tips too!"
"Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate:
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summer's lease hath all too short a date,
Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,
And often is his gold complexion dimmed,
And every fair from fair sometime declines,
By chance, or nature's changing course, untrimmed.
But thy eternal summer shall not fade,
Nor lose possession of that fair thou ow'st,
Nor shall death brag thou wand'rest in his shade,
When in eternal lines to time thou grow'st.
So long as men can breathe or eyes can see,
So long lives this, and this gives life to thee."
~William Shakespear's 18th Sonnet
