One day during my stay on Grant Road I visited my neighbour, Rory Villars, who also happens to be a watercolour artist and master of the whimsical, (yes, I know it's an overworked adjective but here it really belongs). Rory spends his winters in Mexico where he paints delightful scenes like this:
You can see the Mexican influence in the tiles. Cats are important creatures in many of his paintings. To see more of Rory's work go to www.roryvillars.com
This is my interpretation of Rory's Bella Coola home.During the flood the water reached to just below the window in the tower. I hope he didn't lose his art supplies or any of his paintings.
