Grace Allen, an 80-year-old lifetime Alberta resident spent several decades raising Charolais white cattle until 2002, when it became too physically demanding.

That’s when she began painting, using her kitchen table to produce her works of art. In 2006 Allen was asked by the Canadian National Charolais Foundation to produce something creative for a fundraiser, and that’s when she first got the idea of painting a scene on a wood saw.
The image was of her father, ploughing a field with an eight-horse team. She still produces canvas prints and still paints saws, displaying her works for both sale and fundraisers, pieces like the one she’s holding in this photo taken Saturday at the Alcurve Hall craft sale.
