Green Bun SquirrelFunny Face Squirrels (Avenue Squirrels)

The inspiration for Funny Face Squirrels came from fashion and glamour of the 1950’s and 60’s.

Growing up, I spent many weekends watching classic
movies with my grandparents, and came to
adore the clothing and style of the era.

The Funny Face squirrel paintings are all set to ornate frames that once housed mirrors. See video.
This gives the effect of you looking at yourself.
And who is staring back? It’s you, with your lovely, sunny, funny face

Marion Evamy
Marion Evamy is a visual artist, best friend, dog lover, beach hound,

musicologist, foodie and style monger for haute bohemian cool. her artworks are colourful, happy, mysterious and ever-evolving. Marion’s family, animals and local folks provide endless subject matter for her paintings – though she is also fascinated with personas and archetypes from popular culture…

“Infused with jewel tones, unique applications and radiant colors, Marion’s canvases portray mystery and whimsy, and evoke memories of the work of the European Expressionists. Graphic images, pattern, texture and references to other worlds and precious things, her works imply characters looking for that elusive sentiment between turmoil and harmony. “

Eleanor Lowden Pidgeon
Eleanor began her career as a professional artist 20 years ago living in Ontario. Her work can be seen at Koyman Galleries in Ottawa, ON, Canvas Gallery in Toronto, Big Bay Point Gallery in Innisfil, ON, Gibson Fine Art  in Calgary, AB, Bluerock Gallery in Black Diamond, AB,  and Elevation Gallery in Canmore, AB.
