My Polar Series in Canada Day Window

My polar series in hand embossed pewter
Above is part of the Canada Day window display of the Kevin Dodds Gallery in Ottawa, Canada. Kevin chose my hand embossed pewter works to add a very Canadian touch to his holiday window.
All these pieces are on a wood panel with the pewter work on an acrylic background. The polar theme includes polar bears, Inukshuks, wolves, kayaks, whales...and a maple leaf to complete the Canadian theme.
I am very fortunate to work with a gallery owner who is so supportive of my work.


  1. I really love the pewter effect against that red! This is a super idea and makes a wonderful window display. I've never worked in metal but already I am pondering the possibilities!

    1. Thank you, Morag. I don't know anyone else who works with the metal the way I do. I really enjoy it.

  2. What a great idea Christiane! This would take planning way in advance. Good job! I think they look stunning in the window. Hope they are all swept up and taken to new homes. It seems like you found yourself a great gallery to be part of. I had a look at their website and it is pretty awesome! All the best with your gallery relationship. Thanks also for your visit to my blog and your comments which are always so greatly appreciated. Happy Painting! :)

  3. Thank you so much, Ross, for your nice comments. I am very fortunate to be in such a good gallery that is so supportive of my work.
    Happy painting to you also, my friend.
