Mid February Gallery News

Newly arrived! Velvet Pillows

We are thrilled to feature our charming Velvet Pillows! Two beautiful themes that have delighted our clients. ‘Contentment’, feeling the island vibes of placid sheep grazing under a canopy of Olive trees, yes Salt Spring Island has Olive Groves!

This idyllic scene originally inspired from Tuscany where I spent six weeks immersed in painting and exhibiting my art at Museo D’arte di Chianciano. Everyday I drove back roads viewing a contented scene of sheep grazing in quiet areas. Here on Salt Spring Island we have many sheep farms and years ago our semi Mediterranean climate spawned a few experimenting farmers to grove Olive Trees. TheOliveFarm.ca is today a small cottage industry blossoming with production of olive oil that together with charming views allow a deep reminiscing of beloved Italian travels.

‘Happy Dance’ my second Velvet pillow richly imbued with twirling roses offers up a positive feeling to any decor. Charmingly sophisticated roses evoke warmth, love, calm. Roses have been a favourite theme for me as well many clients.
