I am always inspired when I come home to Nova Scotia. This summer I want to share with you two incredibly talented Nova a Scotian artsts, Tom Alway and Peter Blais. I have loved their work for a long time but this is the first summer in ages that I have been able to spend time with them in their quant gallery, called The Maritime Painted Saltbox.
Their work captures Nova Scotia perfectly. The images and the colours say home to me.
If you are on the South Shore, their gallery is a must-see. They also have a selection of reproduction heritage furniture, folk art and prints. You can order prints of many of their paintings on their website.
I could literally buy almost everything there but there was one piece in particular that I have become a tad obsessed with this summer. I am thrilled to say that this beautiful original painting by Tom is coming home with my to Ontario, as an anniversary gift from my hubby. How lucky am I?!
