Sue Coleman tribute

It was June 1999 when I walked into a book shop in Victoria, British Columbia.

The book was called "Sue Coleman" photo "Artist at Large Along The South Coast of Alaska"

The photo attracted my attention - pictograph of an otter in the First Nation - West Coast "style", too vague, I recognize, but I do not have the names - above her painting of an otter eating a sea urchin.

So yesterday, when I was walking along the shore near Stephen Leacock's home, I saw a scene

that brought back those memories:

And now to be able to paint the emotion, in water colours, on a cruise ship to Alaska.

Inspiration - and a lot of perspiration!
