Sunset, Opunohu Bay 20" x 20" , oil by Rokhaya Waring
Last June, I traveled to Moorea, a volcanic island in the middle of the South Pacific and part of Tahiti. Moorea can truly be called "Paradise on Earth". A place I had only read about was suddenly the place I stood, paints in hand. I often had the feeling there of being in a dream. I couldn’t help but think of Fletcher Christian and the Bounty or wonder where Gauguin and Matisse might have walked… My greatest challenge was seeing through its picture-postcard beauty. It is a real place, after all. On Tahiti I was drawn by the swiftly changing clouds, lush vegetation, and the colors of the ocean- the same elements I love about my home in Gloucester, Mass., on the Atlantic. As far apart as they are, each place has helped me see the other- more often contrasting though at times reminiscent.

Wedding Gifts from Sigrid Olsen Art
Fish and Birds have long been among my favorite motifs. The egret was, in fact, the first shape I cut out of the surface of a potato and applied to the surface of a fabric to print. It was the central icon of my company’s logo and still to this day graces many a card or platter in my gallery. And love is one of my favorite emotions. The promise of new love is imbued with such hopefulness, such optimism that the notion of an upcoming wedding grabs everyone’s heart and makes it sing.
I developed two favorite motifs long ago to honor the happy couple and can be created on a platter and inscribed with the names and date of the wedding.
NOW we also haveLove Cards: Kissing Fish and Love Birds to enclose with your gift!
