Rock Me, Baby

Rock Me, Baby

Rock Me, Baby” 24 x 24 acrylic painting on gallery canvas by Cornelia Svela

The sound of the waves hitting the shore so softly and gently could just rock you to sleep...

This painting conjures up a lot of good feelings!

It’s inspired by a photo I took on the evening of our arrival at a cute bunkie we were staying at on Manitoulin Island. I had booked it to celebrate my birthday with a romantic getaway with my husband. It was all that and more!

A HUGE thunderstorm rolled in later that night!!!

It felt like the bunkie was going to rip apart. The rain and high winds pounded us all night long. We were sleeping in a loft and the tree branches knocked on the roof giving us little sleep. The rain and fog continued into the next day, so we didn’t see as much of the island as we would have wanted.

I’m excited to announce that this painting is destined for my first solo art exhibition to be held at TVM Gallery in Blind River, Ontario. My show titled: “Roots, Rocks, and Reflections”, will run from May 15 to Canada Day, 2024, so mark your calendars, friends! I’d love to hear from you if you visit the gallery and view my artwork on display.

Wait For Me!
20″ x 24″acrylic – SOLD

I’m taking a break from packing chaos and a home that has become a sea of boxes to share my most recent painting of some kayakers on Lake Huron which I’ve titled: “Wait For Me!”

The inspiration came from a photo a friend had shared a couple of years ago and I knew immediately when I saw it, that I would paint it one day.

My thought was to paint it as a tribute to Canada in celebration of this great country’s 150th.

It holds so much more meaning now, being so consumed with the anticipation and preparation of our upcoming move up north. Dreams of being near the lake—kayaking, swimming, painting, and fishing. Memories of a childhood growing up in beautiful Elliot Lake come flooding back. I can really say “I’m going home”.
