Bear Graduation

We just released our latest newsletter – http://aboutcanada.ca/store.html?news=1&returnNews=66#returnNews:

We all dressed western for the Calgary Stampede last week, I do like my cowboy gear, and am always disappointed when it is time to put it away again.

We are now truly into our summer season and it gets harder to find the time to tell you all the latest news. But here goes.

Last month I showed you some pieces from a new collection of metal wall art. Since then we have received some great pieces, which I am really pleased with.

These include a range of mountain silhouettes, some of which are functional as coat hooks. In addition I am really pleased that he has developed his own version of the Continental Tree a line of free standing or wall mounted metal art that was incredibly popular, until the artist retired.

I like the Rundle coat hook so much that I installed one at home.

Last year, at about this time, we welcomed back the Welcome Bears. Long time readers may remember that Howard Mahone, from Alberta, used to carve these by hand with a chainsaw. Sadly Howard passed away in 2011. However part of the process was that he cut the tree down, carved the bears and then let them dry out for two or three years. Consequently when he passed away there was a stock pile of drying bears.

His wife, and assistant, who always used to do the finishing elected to finish off the remaining bears, by sanding, painting and varnishing started work on the stock pile. She just releases a few at a time and we have been lucky enough to get another batch. I guess with the timing it is becoming like bear graduation!.

We have also taken a few new pieces from Marianna Mikhaylyan. Whenever we sell a few pieces Marianna paints us some more. I really look forward to opening the delivery and seeing the new, always lovely, pieces.
