These days, combining scuba diving and painting has led me to many exotic locations where, after a morning of diving, I can set up under the shade of a tree and paint a seascape. Painting after scuba diving with its thrills and challenges is very calming and serene. Harsh winters…
We quite often enjoyed seeing wildlife while we spent long hours outdoors. On one trip, we decided to go to Waterton Lakes National Park, in Alberta, located on the joint U.S.-Canadian border. We chose to paint the lake and mountains, and set up on a grassy area close to the…
When Carol and I were both living in Alberta, we stayed  a month at the Gushul Studio for Artists in Blairemore, Alberta. The town was near Frank Slide, the  tragic site of a small coal mining community crushed by a mountain slide. The area felt eerie to begin with. It…
One summer, Rebecca and I decided to take a different route to Emma Lake from Calgary and Edmonton, Alberta, where we were living. We drove straight east from Edmonton stopping close to Turtle Lake, Saskatchewan to spend the night and paint. We were on a narrow gravel road when we…
During another trip Mom, Carol, Becky, and I decided to head south in Alberta along the edge of the forestry reserves and mountains. We discovered a beautiful location with a wide-open pasture skirting the mountains. We managed to brace the wind and set up in various locations. Suddenly we heard…
There were not too many incidents that broke the flow of our painting. However, one time when Mom, Rebecca, Carol, and I were painting in Kananaskis Country, a region of Albertan provincial parks encompassing both the foothills and mountains, a park ranger asked us if we had seen the grizzly…
After she had moved to Calgary, my sister, Rebecca, often joined Mom and I, on our sketching trips that were fruitful and productive excursions. We painted continuously until dusk and photographed every site. The photographs and watercolors gave us the information, studies, and inspiration for the work eventually done in…
Together with my sisters Rebecca Perehudoff, and Carol Perehudoff, and my mother, Dorothy Knowles, I have had many adventures in search of new landscapes to paint. We have met unconventional people, encountered wildlife, and experienced unpredictable weather. Recently, Mom was saying it always seemed that if we started out in…

Upcoming Events

International Group Exhibit in Rome. “Landscape (Inside and All Around Me)”#2 ,Carlo D'Orta ArtStudio/Gallery in Rome
The gallery is located in the center, in Trieste district, an area characterized by the presence of embassies (e.g. of the Arab Republic), important ancient monuments (Catacombs of Priscilla, Mausoleum of Santa Costanza) and cultural institutions (German Academy of Villa Massimo).
The exhibition will be held from 20th January to 10th February 2022

Curator Adelinda Allegretti wrote: “The curatorial project entitled “Landscape (Inside and All Around Me)” began in 2014, with a first exhibition in Sigtuna, Sweden.
Several years later I selected the Carlo D'Orta ArtStudio/Gallery in Rome as a continuation of that experience. About the theme, here are the words in the catalogue of Sigtuna's exhibition: «The concept of this show was devised several years back for an exhibition space in Tivoli, near Rome but, as sometimes happens, logistic problems delayed the organization. When the opportunity arose for an exhibition in Sweden, I immediately realized that the concept that I had previously put aside was perfectly in line with the image of Northern Europe rooted in the collective unconscious. Its wide, uncontaminated spaces more or less intentionally conjure the idea of the right “emptiness” that is necessary to look inside oneself and discover the endless lands of our innermost self. Admiration and respect for the physical landscape is but a first, compulsory step towards an itinerary that starts from the outer in order to reach the inner space».

Collector Invitation

For archival purposes and future public exhibitions the artist would like to invite collectors of her work, if they are interested, to share their names, the title, medium, year of the painting they own and contact information with her in order to facilitate potential curatorial research. Due to the closing of many commercial galleries previously exhibiting her work information pertaining to the location of earlier paintings has been lost. This information would be kept confidential in the artist’s records unless there was a request for a specific art work to be included in a public exhibition at which time the collector would be contacted for permission.
