for April, 2019
Hey everyone! April kicks of our second month of our “Featured Artist Series” on the blog!
So who is our Featured Artist for the month of April? Well, if you have been to the store as of lately, you will have noticed that we have a few new pieces in store! These pieces are not like any other however… we have several stunning pieces from the absolutely wonderful Melissa Proudlock.
So what exactly sets these pieces apart? The secret: Melissa paints every original with wine… yes, you read that correctly… WINE! From Baco Noir to Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay to Rosé, the pigments from lees and natural sediments within each varietal and blend, as well as the wine itself, offers a wide range of colours, and the fine details Melissa creates develop stunning images.
We have be super excited to have some of Melissa’s prints available in store, and we can officially announce that we now have several originals for sale as well! A store favourite – the prints of her original painting of Gord Downie! (Note: $5.00 from each Gord Downie print will be donated to the Gord Downie Fund for Brain Cancer Research.)
To learn more about Melissa’s work and see other pieces she has available, make sure to check out her website Painted With Wine and stop by the store to see which pieces we currently have available!
Make sure to get your prints or original pieces before they are gone!
