Description Nola's Unicorn, by the late Avonelle Kelsey (1931-2009) is a 36x24 acrylic on canvas that was inspired by one of the artist's own short stories, Of Unicorns and Peacocks. However the piece got its name from a family habit of claiming paintings in the gallery as their own for taking sometime in the future. Horse and unicorn paintings were often taken by Avonelle's oldest daughter, an avid equine addict. Thus, a soon as I (Nola) saw this painting I launched a long, and mildly irritating, multi-year campaign to let everyone know that this one was Nola's Unicorn.

I am the daughter of artist Avonelle Kelsey (1931-2009).
Most sales go towards paying my massive art storage bills back home and helping Mom's legacy of creativity live on while I decide what best to do with the last of the artwork I rescued from her gallery before it was 'cleaned out'.
