'Canada Day Celebrations at Ravine Winery' Inspired Painting

Canada Day Celebrations at Ravine Vineyard Estate Winery provided wonderful inspiration for a painting I recently created.

This piece is the third in a series of work that is inspired by the landscape and rhythm of the landscape surrounding Ravine, in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario.

This new piece of art is entitled 'Celebration'. It is  expressive of the dramatic firework display on Canada Day over the vineyards.

It is also symbolic of a powerful source of energy flowing up from the vineyard, to the sun and embracing it.

I chose aluminum for my canvas for it's lustrous quality. It's a little tough to see in a picture online, but the layers of acrylic paint evolved into an explosion of colour worked between clear and iridescent coloured  areas of shimmering  aluminum.

This technique allows the art piece to reflect light, colour and create depth in  the room.

What Clients are Saying

  • We recently renovated our bathroom, but there was something missing. I spoke to Rob at Creek Road Paints in the Niagara-on-the-Lake area, from whom I had purchased the paint for the bathroom, and he suggested I talk to Karen Felesko. Karen responded quickly to my e-mail and came by for a consultation. She entered the space and intuited the vibe and effect we were trying to create. She suggested new handles for the vanity and quickly made a few sketches. Within a few minutes she understood my preference for the abstract and came up with a beautiful design. A couple of weeks later, Karen installed 8 stunning pieces of art on the vanity. The bathroom pops now and is my favourite room in the house!
