About This Piece

This is the house that my father built, beginning in 1984, at 7910, Woodside Avenue, Procter, British Columbia. He purchased the original structure (a one-room cabin which remains inside the current building) for $7,000.00, and, after installing indoor plumbing and a bathroom, gradually added bedrooms, improved the bathroom, expanded the kitchen, added an upstairs bed and bath, and outdoor studio.

I made 50 copies of a postcard of this painting, which was published on August 20th, 2007, and was available for sale at the Procter General Store until late 2008 when stocks sold out.

I did the drawings and sketches for this piece from across the street, near the MacLeod residence. I finished the painting in the studio that you see behind the house.
