Finding and Smelling the Roses

Smells wonderful!
Along the trails that skirt the shores of the Petitcodiac River you can always count on being surprised. Surprises come by the sight of fourteen great blue herons sitting on the rocks and fishing for supper at low tide, a fledgling eagle soaring above the water (also looking for supper) or by a beautiful rose bush at the edge of the marsh. Did someone plant it? A discard from a garden?  The mystery doesn't matter - as long you always take the time to stop and smell the flowers!

Time now to share with you some of my art that I have for sale. My plan is to add items on a weekly basis. Contact me by email at if interested or for further info!
