Hub Hotel

Hub Hotel 11″ x 14″

Here is yet another familiar sight in Mayerthorpe. As I look back, I am surprised at how many paintings I’ve done of my home town – from the outskirts to side streets, and now all the way down Main.

Something cool to look at during this heat wave.

Storm Over Mayerthorpe

Storm Over Mayerthorpe 14″x 18″

This is the same storm that I painted in here, just a little further down the road. Is anyone else getting “Stranger Things” vibes from this one?

Grandma’s House

Grandma’s House 8″ x 8″

This is a little painting of my Grandma’s house, which I have painted before. My style has changed quite a bit since the first one. I’m not sure who took this photo or how it got into my files, but thanks to the family member who shared it.

This painting is available as a print on Etsy.

Green Giant

Another trip to Mayerthorpe means another painting of the elevator. From a new angle. With different lighting.

For sale on Etsy.

Barn at Southlands Farm

It’s unusual to see this barn without a bunch of kids out front and people wandering around. Southlands Heritage Farm is a community farm, open to the public – a great place if you need a break from the city, without leaving the city.

Car Wash!

The best part of this picture is the exclamation point! I love the enthusiasm.

A Little Winter

Since many of these will be given as Christmas gifts, I decided to make some that are appropriate for the season.

Hastings Mill Store

Hastings Mill Store 18″x24″

This is the Hastings Mill Store – known as Vancouver’s oldest building. You can read all about it’s history here. The park where it is located is my favourite picnic spot in the city. It sits up on a cliff overlooking English Bay, with a beautiful view of downtown and the North Shore mountains.
