Canadian Inspired Knitting

o canada collection 4x6_0974

As some of you may know, I have a new site up called Handmade in Canada. It is a site of handmade and art pieces, influenced and inspired by Canada, and often made with natural, eco-friendly and Canadian sourced materials.

Over the next few weeks we will be adding shops and galleries to our various collections on Handmade in Canada. Today we launched the O’ Canada Collection.

Our O’Canada Collection celebrates the colors of our flag. The iconic red and white, are accompanied by grays, dark browns and blacks. This is classic Canadian. Our collection will remind you of ….well……everything Canadian (and maybe old school work socks too!).

The O’ Canada Collection is made of natural sheep wool, produced here in Canada and milled in a heritage mill. We believe in using natural products and using Canadian produced raw materials when possible. The yarn for this collection is hand dyed in natural dyes in micro batches with the red color being obtained through dyeing with lac. All items are hand knit and are one of a kind. Each item posted is available for purchase and ready to be shipped. Items can be viewed by clicking HERE.

Items start at $15.00 including tax and shipping within Canada. The pieces make great gifts for friends and family  as they are Canadian made, unbreakable, and ship well.

I hope you will pop over to the new site and check it out. More collections are to come. Also if you have any special requests send us an email, we are always up for creating something new.

For more information please feel free to email us at handmade-canada@outlook.com .

Evening View to Clam Bay Farm – New Canadian Painting

"Evening View to Clam Bay Farm" 2015 12"x12" acrylic on panel

“Evening View to Clam Bay Farm”
2015
12″x12″
acrylic on panel

This painting was inspired by an evening view of historic Clam Bay Farm on Pender Island (British Columbia, Canada). Through the smoky haze of distant forest fires soft colors play in the distance.

A smaller sized panel, pastel colors and new subject matter  created new territory for painting. This is the second painting in the last couple of weeks with an agricultural theme. This is perhaps not what first comes to mind when you think of the Gulf Islands, but farming is definitely part of the island’s past, present and culture.
