Description

This little painting of Bemm River, on the Victorian coast, in Australia, was given to me by a dear friend. We went for a trip there with her and my daughter. Upon returning, she painted a series of six miniatures which she gave me afterwards. I brought them to Canada because they remind me of the beauty of Australia, and of her wish for me to be happy in Canada, to travel far and wide and remember her. She is an artist, and recognized the importance to me of Montreal's creative community. My friend, who painted this canvas, represents to me what Montreal represents to me also, the joy of creative community and a celebration of friendship.
