Artist Paul Kelley Paul Kelley is a Nova Scotia artist who's figurative paintings, and Nova Scotia art is collected by individuals and corporations throughout Canada and the world. His statement: "I hope that throughout my career I have been able to please many people with my paintings, and that my figurative art has been particularly pleasurable for people who understand that the qualities of sensual beauty that I instill in this art subject are just that. I have always regarded this work as a celebration of the female form and commentary on woman's commanding visual presence in our world, in addition to their humanity and intellect. I believe that it is important to appreciate beauty as an end in itself. It is as simple as being able to stop and regard the beauty of sunrise before a hectic day; and as complicated as overcoming our preconditioning to desire to see more than what we see. Allegory and metaphor exist in my artwork, but the beauty and grace of the female form in my artwork is intended to convey just that."

Paul Jerrard Hummingbird These charming illustrations of flowers are the height of Victorian illustration, accompanied by equally flowery poetry written by F.W.N. Bayley Esq. They are now extremely rare, as are the other works Jerrard published, “The Floral Offering” and “Exotic Birds.” Each is beautifully hand colored and enhanced by gold lettering. On the verso of most is a poem, also in gold lettering. http://www.panteek.com/JerrardHummingbirds/index.htm Source: http://ludikosior.blogspot.com/2013/04/paul-jerrard-hummingbird-antique-prints.html #art #painting #classic #flowers #illustration
