Maybe the painting should be sub-titled “Just another Ship in A Bottle”.

The ship enclosed in this mason jar however is an image of The Melita. It was the passenger ship that carried a young Phoebe Connor, her parents, brothers, and sister to Canada as they immigrated in 1920’s. The aforementioned Phoebe was my mom, so the Melita at least to me will never be just another ship.

Ghosts of Christmas Past

Gallery 78 in Fredericton New Brunswick has an annual show for the season called Christmas Choice. The paintings above are my contribution to the show for this year. For many, Christmas is a treasure trove of memories, and these images remind me of some special ones. I hope the Ghosts of Christmas’s Past are kind to you this season, if they’re not please be kind to yourself.
