PRICKLY PEARS - acrylic painting on canvas by Sheila Dvore

Sheila, a 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. Also the 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.
