In my experience, the best gifts are the ones you secretly wish to keep for yourself… and this calendar is certainly worthy of buying an extra!
This 2013 Art Calendar is available for $20.00 from the community office. The artist, Suzanne Heron has graciously donated $12 from the sale of each calendar to the Victoria Women’s Transition House.
With her stunning mastery of digital painting , Heron has captured the best of Vancouver Island in a calendar. Designed to illustrate a one-day Tour of Vancouver Island, she captures the natural beauty of our diverse landscape, highlights our favorite landmarks and shares the secrets to colorful local cuisine.
A few of my favorite paintings are above.
This is the perfect gift for someone who already appreciates the rich culture and landscape of Vancouver Island or for someone abroad you would like to share the Pacific Marine Coastal Tour with.
You can feel good about giving this as a gift this Holiday Season!
