Life on the Island feels like one big, long weekend,
and one of the best ways to experience that feeling
firsthand is with a Vacation on Canvas. This gallery
houses the visually stunning works of Robert
Peterson, whose newest collection of original
paintings continues his masterful portrayal of the
island environment with vivid colors and a relaxing
comfort that have become his trademarks. Along
with the original works for sale, reproductions of
Peterson’s work are available in canvas giclées,
cards, paper prints, and one-of-a-kind ceramic tiles.
