The La Vase Portage painting, titled “Freedom” had a significant symbolic meaning of our ancestors’ historic passage in the new world. Therefore, I used the symbolic elements to metaphorically represent it’s significant meaning of the various voyagers’ passage through time.
The body of water is one of the 5 basic elements that are believed to make up everything in this world. The symbol of water has a universal undertone as the source of life, purity and fertility. Water signify clarity, purity, trust, refreshment, regeneration and transformation.
While the water lily symbolizes the cycle of life; birth and death, universality, symbol of chastity and purity of the heart and soul. In Western cultures, eloquence or gracefulness and estranged love is symbolically represented by water lilies.
A symbol of longevity, protection, order, and creation, in many cultures the iconic turtle is revered as the wisest soul in the animal kingdom. Turtles remind us that the way to Heaven is through Earth, a path to salvation. Just as the turtle cannot separate itself from its shell, neither can we separate ourselves from what we have done on earth.
The Frog is another iconic symbol of fertility, luck, rebirth and renewal, truth, change and transformation, peace and tranquility, opportunity, sensitivity, cleansing and healing in many cultures across the world. The Japanese believes frog brings back good luck and wealth.
The significance of the dragonfly, a creature of water, and every creature that dwells in water (turtle, frog, etc.), symbolizes the subconscious mind and deeper thoughts.
This is the reason why dragonflies are said to remind us to pay heed to our dreams and desires, because our outlook towards life is not only influenced by the external environment around us, but also our deepest thoughts. Law of attraction!

I wanted to let you know that I just received my online order of my favourite St. Armand Paper plus markers. I am so impressed with your service – thank you so much. I am a member of our local art centre here in Kimberley BC and we have very few choices of where to purchase our supplies. We usually leave our buying list to when we make our four hour journey into Calgary. You have made our lives so much simpler. I will passing on your website to my artist group of friends.
Thank you again.
I will be back.

Thanks very much Bob, the parcel arrived last Monday and the paintings are already hanging on the wall. I appreciate your excellent service.
I received your order promptly. I'm very impressed on how well packaged it was, as well as the choice of art supplies you have. I've now added you on my list of go-to suppliers...

I do not do large orders often but have ordered with you once before. Your paint prices are so much better than Toronto art stores. If there are any product samples that you want to get rid of, I would be happy to receive them as I experiment with a lot of different supplies. Please save on packaging and send everything at one time. I stopped ordering from Amazon, because their overuse of packaging is out of control, and I prefer to support Cdn businesses as much as I can. Thank you for your great service, I had a great experience with my last order.

I just wanted to drop you a note to thank you for sending, at no charge, the taper point shaper, I really appreciate it. Aside from this, I meant to drop you a note after I received my previous order which was also my first. Thanks for taking such great care in packaging the items purchased, such professionalism is rare to find, thank you!
I hope I’ll be able to broaden the array of items I will order from your store, I wish you’d carry PastelMat paper J
