• VAG

    VAG = stands for “Vancouver Art Gallery”. The VAG was originally designed as a courthouse and still frequently plays one in many of the movies and TV shows that are filmed in Vancouver. The gallery contains lots of Canadiana such as Emily Carr and many of the Group of Seven painters.

    My memories of VAG are of sitting on the steps. It was always a well-known meeting point because the vantage from the steps lent itself to excellent people-watching. You were never bored waiting there.

    I painted this one as I remember it best, always late afternoon, early evening, with a golden-pink glow from the lowering sun.
