painting the town

Bonjour de Quebec,

Tomorrow in Salmon Arm marks the 5th anniversary of Paint the Town, a great fundraiser for our beloved art gallery. Congratulations and thank you to all the artists who participate and continue to make this live art action packed day such good fun. And to Tracey and her band of warrior volunteers a special thank you for making it happen yet again (with a second edition going next weekend at Roots and Blues – Paint the Festival)

In honour of paint the town, I thought I’d share a few of my Dad’s watercolour paintings of the scenes nearby our camp in the rural Lotbiniere Appalaches area just south of Quebec City. It’s a lovely part of the world. Settled by the British, the Scottish and the Irish. My anglo dad feels quite at home here and I like to think that happiness shows in the whimsy of his brush strokes.

Bon Weekend!
