2015 Xmas Gift Ideas #3

November 27th, 2015 Leave a comment Go to comments

We just released our latest Christmas gift ideas newsletter http://aboutcanada.ca/store.html?news=1&returnNews=69#returnNews.

This is the third, of our four, Christmas gift ideas news letters.

This weekend is the World Cup race at Lake Louise, so we have a ski theme. (The ski conditions on the hills are just great by the way).

I would also like to wish our readers in the US a happy Thanksgiving.

We start off this time with work from the ex Canadian ladies downhill coach Mark Sharp. Mark had a limited edition of prints of two paintings (Start and Victory) that he did for the Ski Federation, we sold through both images about a year ago. They depict the downhill race at Lake Louise. Mark has now released the small number that he was holding back for himself. They are large and impressive prints, we bought one for home and it looks great

On a non ski subject. A very popular line of jewellery that we sell is the oxidised silver line from Canadian artist Gilles Maurel. These are a reasonably priced, but quite distinctive line that catches the eye.

We have had plenty of snow and the skiing is great. Cori Ross captures the fun of winter.

Finally, though not really skiing. Marianna Mikhaylyan has produced a fun winter piece `Bon Homme De Neige’ which I thought I would show you, along with a couple of her other pieces that I like.
