"Harbour Ferry" traditional hull, oil 11x14

Here in Victoria BC we are familiar with the cute OVAL-shaped ferries but a few TRAD-looking ones can be found at the Swift Street dock of the Victoria Harbour Ferries headquarters. Oil 11x14 painted on location. The owner gave me special permission to come and paint on the otherwise locked dock!

Canadian Whisky Painters" w/c 4x6

We have a local artist group called Whisky Painters of Canada - I think you can see it on Google. Anyway, we did indeed dip our brushes into our watercolour water laced with whisky (usually an accidental action) and we had a sip from a hip flask to seal the deal. So you are looking at a painting made with whisky water. Genuine.

"VW three" 6x8 w/c

VW owners are justly proud of their vehicles. More and more we are seeing these beauties on our roads, I myself had a Beetle and later a VW Bus which we what we called a KOMBI in South Africa. Functional, clean, I enjoyed mine.
