The Heart of Fernwood SOLD

This is the heart of Victoria's Fernwood
neighbourhood with all of the "art and heart" buildings
that I mention in one of my earlier posts.
The building to the far left is the Belfry Theatre and the building
behind the pink cherry tree is home to the She Said Gallery.
Across the street there is the Fernwood Inn
and the Cornerstone Cafe.
The black dog from "In Fernwood" found it's way
into this one
and so did a VW van...

1713 1/2 Government Street SOLD

Happy Valentine's Day!

This week I had the pleasure of
being invited to do a demonstration for
Studio 30 Art Club, (a wonderful, friendly
group of artists who meet in Saanich), and
this scene of
Victoria's Chinatown is the result.
I was inspired by the reds with the bits of
blue and the one round shape among all of the rectangles.

Coton Girls SOLD

Coton's Grocery, (originally named Round the Corner),
was a small neighbourhood grocery store operated
by Mr. & Mrs. Leonard Coton and their three
daughters Eileen, Pat, & Marjorie.
Marjorie's daughter, Mary, (who commissioned this painting),
remembers working in the store as well.
Although the building is currently used as a
private residence, it is on record as
"the best preserved storefront in Esquimalt".
