OLIVE TREE - acrylic painting on canvas by Sheila Dvore

Sheila, mother of three, and grandmother of 4, is an art teacher and curator of exhibitions. In her paintings she uses the dove with an olive branch in its beak as a symbol of peace. She includes prickly pears- a wild cactus that grows all over the country; its fruit is full of thorns and yet it is very sweet on the inside.
