Not an elevator but a grain grinder in oil by Gertjan. This is a pastiche; as in a copy of another’s original painting. The original painter was the great Jacob van Ruisdael. Collection of the mother of the Artist’s Daughter, Carey Annbrie; a ceramic artist and merchant in Nova Scotia. The mother of the Artist’s three grandchildren.
VIKING, Alberta, before the elevators were torn down. Circa 1980. Photo by Gertjan.
