Weird and Wonderful B.C.

Too small to see here, but the license plate for British Columbia actually reads "Beautiful British Columbia." Thus the title of Maxwell Bates' tongue-in-cheek painting from 1966, part of a fine show at the Vancouver Art Gallery called Lights Out: Canadian Painting from the 1960s. Haven't been able to figure out the make of the car--little help please.

If you visit the gallery, make sure you stop by the cafe. Good food, nice space, and a message on the napkin dispensers you are unlikely to find at any other art gallery in the world.
I took two.

My last "Hockey Night in Canada." Which begins here at about 3 o'clock in the afternoon. Go Canucks Go!
