'Fifteen Minutes to the Meat Draw: Saturdays, Esquimalt Legion' oil on canvas, 30"x 40" This painting is based on references from earlier in the year. The band in the background has a personal connection and we really enjoyed the crowd and atmosphere on the 2 occasions we went. There's a lot going on in this scene - the card players, the woman sipping her drink, the band, the dancers - (all very skilled, I might add-they know how to two-step!). These occasions are friendly, affordable, and fun and more and more of a rarity. Our loss!
