Mark, the current owner of this old house agreed to let me paint it. He is having to demolish it because it is too far gone. It once belonged to an ancient mariner who surprised passers-by by appearing in all sorts of naval get-up.

This is at False Bay on San Juan Island, a wonderful spot for locals and visitors alike.
Did I mention the oil painting is for sale? $500 Canadian or American dollars, shipping might be extra, depending on where you reside.
(The oil painting is on stretched canvas, unframed or framed, as you wish. Please contact me by posting a COMMENT below).
