"Natural Serenity" Acrylic Painting of Drumbeg Point, Gabriola Island by Gillian Gandossi

Natural Serenity

acrylic on canvas
32″ x 24″


This painting was inspired by one of my favorite spots on Gabriola Island. Waking early in the morning, the dappling light of the sun on the wood ceiling called me down to the beach. There is a natural peace pervading the bay as gentle waves lap the shore.

Purchasing Original Paintings

Interested in one of my paintings? Let me know which painting you have in mind. Paintings can be picked up, or we can arrange shipping. If you are here on Saltspring Island, I can bring it to you to see how it looks in your space.



Selections of my work are available as giclee prints. They are museum quality, printed with archival inks on archival matte paper. Each print is signed, matted to fit standard sized frames and comes with a certificate of authenticity. See the them in my online shop:



I can create a unique painting designed specifically for you. Inquiries are welcome. We can discuss size, color palette, subject and price. Here are some examples of commissioned works I have done:
“Through the Trees”
“Blue Skies”


About the Canvas

I build my own stretcher-frames, and stretch the canvas. The paintings are 1.5″ deep, with the outside edges preserved as clean raw canvas. This method of preparation allows for a frameless presentation.
