Perfect Day

Sold and lives in Alberta now.

I had planned to paint this image for a long time, so when this piece of wood came along I saw it fit my image perfectly.  The waves of grain mimic water, the grey decay added to the falling shadows on that sunny day at the lake.

For sure it is my grandpa in a speedo with leather boots on, but is that Aunty Olive?  They are on a dock on Sprout lake I think, but no one seems quite sure about that either.  However, I remember it to be Grandpa, Aunty Olive and Sprout lake, on a perfect sunny day in Port Alberni.  So what if I hadn’t even been born yet?
