"Jasper Collage" done for a generous classmate who has hosted numerous reunions. She gave methe carved face for a birthday gift; I gave it back, as a watercolour painting. "Tonquin Valley"
My grandparents spent their honeymoon here in 1930, camping for five weeks while Grandad built a stone cabin for the Alpine Club of Canada. They later owned a tourist chalet (built by her grandad in 1928-29) at the base of nearby Mount Edith Cavell.

"Cleve Everett"
a kindred-spirit cousin who drowned in Jasper in 1971 at age 21. He rests there forever, as does Old Man Mountain, shown in the background of this and the "Jasper Collage".

"George's Jars"
A short story about George Hartley, who lived two doors west of us in this big, old house. I could write at least half a dozen more stories about his eccentric genius, and who knows?, maybe one day, time allowing, I will.
