Portrait of Evelyn Wheeler Morry by Jusof Karsh
It is with regret that we, her children, must feel in part responsible for the fact that our mother, Evelyn Wheeler Morry, gave up a promising career as an artist because of a failure to be appreciated. The paintings below are all that remain of her body of work; many more were thoughtlessly or carelessly destroyed years ago. At least we will have these to appreciate and jealously guard as her lasting legacy.
Ferryland North Side
Gatineau River Rapids
The Morry Premises from the Wee Hoose
Wreck of the TORHAMVAN
The paintings below were completed by Mom during the early days of her training and were relegated to the basement because of her self-imposed high standards. They were only discovered on the occasion of her 90th birthday in November 2007 and will be restored and framed for the future enjoyment of her family.
