Story behind "Warmth Of The Holidays"
It all started last Christmas when I was given the honour to paint a christmas-themed set floral paintings that may one day become stamps (fingers crossed)
but in this process I become inspired to ask myself what makes Christmas special to me?
I thought about me family and friends, loved ones that come and gone. I thought about the warmth and smells of turkey dinner, the warm lights around the trees. I thought of the joy of me wife and son laughing.
Armed with this in mind I set off to find things in nature that could speak to these feelings.
Right away I started the oven for baking orange slices. I soon headed out in the snow and gathered up pine limbs, the smell alone was reason enough. I found myself at the cold windy coast line on Cape Breton Island and came across a small apple tree in amongst the bushes. This made me think of hot apple cider, so I grabs a couple then ran to the little village grocer to pick up fresh sticks of cinnamon to go with the apples. I came home and plopped down my findings and headed straight to work and came up with "Warmth Of The Holidays"
I absolutely loved making this painting and hope you can feel the warmth of the holidays from the bright colours to all the comforting smells !
thank you so much and happy holidays from our family to yours!

- Packaging of originals is done with the utmost care to ensure safe arrival anywhere.
Small to midsize paintings are first wrapped with cardboard around all edges then wrapped in cellophane creating a buffer so nothing touches the surface of the work while in transit.
Small holes are placed in the cellophane for the artwork allowing for adequate air circulation.
The work is then placed in a cardboard box padded with tightly packed paper and or bubble wrap ensuring a safe arrival.
Large works are custom crated and works are cradled with foam corners to ensure a secure fit.
Very large works are secured on the back side to create a buffer from the crate and the painting surface ensuring safe arrival.
Be sure to add an extra week your expected arrival time do to this process.
All original works are shipped through Canada Post unless notified ahead of time on your proffered option.
