This album features both fun, bright country scenes full of bright colours, but also more subdued "at peace" scenes, and everything in between. These artworks are ideal for any room, especially those with a "old-timey" or country theme or feel. They're also ideal for (insulated and heated) barns.
Cool ocean breezes, calm lapping lakes and fun beach days can be found in this collection. These peaces are quite ideal for cottages, beach/lake houses, or simply for those who love the beauty found within the changing characteristics of water. Water can portray serenity, power, diligence, and flexibility, even when it's only paint.

Among the earliest craftspeople in Canada to set up a studio and to make a living by selling their work were Erica and Kjeld Deichmann. Although many potters since have become full-fledged professionals, the Deichmanns were the pathfinders. Their careers span a critical period - from 1935 until Kjeld's death in 1963 - that represents a turning point in the history of crafts in Canada. It was the point at which the traditional crafts gave birth to the crafts as an artistic endeavour.
Since 1970, Peter Powning has lived and worked as an artist in the hills of southern New Brunswick. His life is characterized by intense periods of work preparing for exhibitions and commissions, punctuated by periodic travel. While Powning’s award-winning work is shown internationally, it is imbued with qualities distilled from a life lived close to the silence, space and seasonal rhythms of his home, the fields, forests and shorelines of Canada’s east coast.
