Here is a painting Ted did of my backyard. Since I have also depicted a similar scene it is a great picture for comparison with my work. I sense we are on the same page in terms of presenting a simplified colourful image of a recognizable scene, but from there we diverge. He goes crazy with colour (pink mountains and purple whales?) and distorts the landscape to make it almost unrecognizable. It’s fun and whimsical but for me it’s not Vancouver. But what do I know? He has the Order of Canada, while my Orders are always followed by, “Would you like fries with that sir?”
