Artist's Statement:

Painting is an exciting adventure into life around me. The subjects that peak my interest and capture my heart are what you see in my paintings. I enjoy capturing the texture of rocks or bark on trees or the fur on animals and feathers on birds. To paint a two dimensional surface and portray the glory of the sky from sunrise to fog or clear blue sky to storm clouds, as well as the grandeur of  mountains and valleys capturing distance and space is a joy and blessing.   I love the contrast of darks and lights as they play against each other in the values of the subject. The Light has over come the darkness in my life when I trusted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. He has given me forgiveness, love, freedom, peace, purpose and so much more. I am able to be the person He created me to be and use the talents He has gifted me with for His glory.

Brief  Biography:

Valerie Borgal was born and brought up in the greater Boston area of Massachusetts. Although she absorbed the works of New England artists, she went to Montreal to study with Professor Dr. Arthur Lismer, one of the seven national artists of Canada. She graduated in 1967 from the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, School of Art and Design. From 1967-1977 she was totally engaged as wife and mother.  Upon joining the Tewksbury Art Guild's workshop in watercolor, she started painting again. She attended classes and workshops in Kennebunkport, Maine with the late Bette Wasserboehr, and with Paul George in Gloucester, at Pemaquid Point and Monhegan Island in Maine. She is a member and past president of the Andovers Artists Guild, a member of the Arts League of Lowell, the Tewksbury Community of Artists, the Woburn Guild of Artists, the Arts Institute Group of the Merrimack Valley, and the Whistler House Museum.

Out of His Mind

Jan - Feb. 6th the Tewksbury Community of Artists pays tribute to
Mico Kaufman,world renown Sculptor and Medalist,
 who resided in our town until his passing in 2016. 

Mico always had images in his mind of what he wanted to create.
He would have more than one project going on at the same time.

This is my tribute to this humble, creative artist and friend.

Wood Duck II


God has created so many beautifully exquiste creatures for us
to enjoy. I looked out my slider and to my delight on this
early spring  morning
with a dusting of snow on
the wooded area behind our house,
there up on a tree limb was a gorgeous male Wood Duck.

He stayed long enough for me to get a few photos and then flew.
What an amazing sight in the midst of a snowy wonderland.
This was painted as a demo for the Bedford Arts and Crafts Society.

Then God said, Let the waters abound with an abundance
of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across
the face of the firmament of the heavens. So God created great sea creatures and every living thing that moves, with which the waters abounded, according to their kind, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good.  And God blessed them, saying, "Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the waters of the seas, and let birds multiply on the earth."
Genesis 1:20-22

Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them.  Are you not of more value than they?
Matthew 6:26
