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, WASAA and the Whistler House Museum. Val also writes poetry when moved to do so. Some are included on this site.

A Bottle of Milk


Using one of my mother's collection of blue glass filled
with white as milk narcissus,
I created this scene with the pond in the background.

Mom planted hundreds of narcissus bulbs around the property.
She loved to work outside.

She enjoyed God's creation and never shied away from hard work.

Fishing in the Rain


 One day while driving along the Merrimack River,
I spotted this young woman fishing in the rain under her big colorful umbrella.  
I had to stop and take a photo.
She was a delight to my heart, a splash of color in the midst of a gray day.

 In the middle of winter here in New England
 it is sometimes hard to visualize that Spring will return.

 The narcissus will come up and bloom beautifully.
We have a wonderful promise from God in Genesis 8:22.


"As long as the earth endures, seed time and harvest,
cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night will never cease."

God will bring Spring along with the birds and flowers and leafing trees
to bring color and beauty to the weary soul.

God is good and in Acts 14:17 it says, "Yet He has not left Himself without testimony: He has shown kindness by giving you rain from heaven and crops in their seasons; He provides you with plenty of  food and fills your hearts with joy."
