Sunflower Art by Joanne Gervais for Ukraine

We were very happy to have World Renowned Visual Artist Joanne Gervais at our Sunflower Festival in 2017 to do on-site artwork of the Sunflowers.  She created paintings and prints of them and has recently taken her love of helping others to a whole new level by offering her beautiful work to raise funds for the war in Ukraine.  They are available as prints, cards, on tote bags and coffee mugs, all benefiting the war in Ukraine. To order them, contact Joanne directly: call 613-542-8451 or email  Visit her website at

On the farm we had some old milk cans which we had used to take some photographs of the Sunflowers. I'm no artist but I thought they looked stunning as a giant bouquet in the milk cans.  When we knew she was coming we offered them to Joanne use if she wished.  I guess she liked the idea as she used them in her art works.

Before her final paintings were unveiled we had the opportunity to watch and enjoy her working on the farm. We were honoured to have a world renowned artist with us.

It was quite fascinating to watch her work - I am always amazed how artists can take something beautiful (in this case the Sunflowers) and make it even more beautiful with their own visual perspective.  

We were also lucky to have a very talented photographer Rob Mooy capture much of the day on film. .
