Good morning, Everyone!
A few years ago, I attended a solo art exhibition at one of our local galleries. It was a series of large (36" x 36") oil canvases of vintage toys. As a baby boomer, I was immediately transported back to my own childhood. Do you remember the bouncing ball baby, the little cowboy or perhaps the raggedy elephant? The paintings were a reminder of days gone by and the colors, detail, highlights, shadows and whimsy were mesmerizing. I loved them all.
The exhibition ended and they were gone.
A few years went by and I started noticing similarly familiar paintings at another nearby art gallery, such as Grandma's Pigeons (below). Yes, a completely different subject and look, but something about the style and technique looked familiar. Later, a fox canvas, One Last Look, caught my eye. Then, Aries, the ram appeared and Predator, the owl. Each painting stood out in a sea of paintings......all so very eyecatching.
Finally, I opened our local newspaper last week and there was a painting of a large brown bunny that was being donated as a fundraiser for our own PEI Humane Society. And the artist was Heather Millar. I googled her. And lo and behold, she was the artist of all of the above-mentioned works and many more. I knew immediately that I wanted to share a sampling of her work with you.
To see more of this versatile artist's work, please go to her site here. If you have any interest in purchasing tickets on the fundraising rabbit, Becoming Real, (below) e-mail Heather here and she will be able to help you and answer any questions you may have regarding her artwork (dimensions, prices, etc.).
Enjoy, and have a great day......and thanks for stopping by!

And last, but certainly not least, Becoming Real, the fundraising rabbit. It is a 30" x 30" oil on canvas valued at $1,600.00. There are tickets available through Heather and the Humane Society would be extremely grateful for any and all contributions......
