Day 17 - "As I Remember It", 30 in 30 Challenge 8 x 10, oil

This past weekend we had a lovely reunion with old hippie friends who loved and/or lived in Kitsilano in the 60's and 70's. It made me nostalgic so today I painted this from a small black and while photo I had of my favourite home back then - upstairs of the Cypress Confectionery. It was never quite this colour, but I did have magenta drapes, and the windows did not match. The building was apparently built-in 1903. It was an incredibly noisy corner, right on 4th Avenue, with a bus stop out front, but I loved it, as did my cat. Both long gone, now.
