How much is that dogwood in the window?
British Columbia’s floral emblem in full and glorious bloom outside our window.
With apologies to the late Bob Merrill, lyricist, composer and screenwriter, who wrote the song from my childhood, “How much is that doggie in the window?” in 1952.
A little bouquet to welcome the first day of summer.
Remembering my late father on Father’s Day with this lovely painting of his. I remember the day he proudly brought it home from his evening art class. Thanks Dad, and Happy Father’s Day to all the lucky dads and grandads out there of which I’m perhaps the luckiest ❤️

The Eternal Flame in the Hall of Remembrance at Yad Vashem
, Jerusalem, which I drew on July 11th 1967, for this Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day, 2019.
“The Eternal Flame, burning from a base fashioned like a broken bronze goblet, continuously illuminates the Hall, its smoke exiting the building through an opening at the highest point of the ceiling. Before it stands a stone crypt containing the ashes of Holocaust victims, brought to Israel from the extermination camps.”
