We have a wonderful collection of geometric and animal/birds canvases from Melissa Prince for you this month! Melissa does great birds, as included on her seasonal wreaths, which also include great flowers and vines. We have included a grouping of her canvases in the pictures below. All prices include our usual 20% discount. You may also order any canvas in her line that is not in stock, and the discount will apply. Stop by soon for the best selection!
