Phew! Finally done. And loving the end result of this little piece. The Latin Corner was a little pub/restaurant (?) that used to ‘live’ on 4th Street SW in Calgary. I used to work in that neighborhood ‘in the day’, and I’d often walk up and down 4th because of the great restaurants and cute shops. I loved the awning on this building and the red facade. One thing made me laugh as I was painting this piece – some how I seem to have uncovered this bizarre skill for painting cars. The car in this photo is only the second one I’ve done. The first was in my Day 1 piece, ‘With Gratitude’. I’d thought that one was a fluke, but given I did it again I’ll take claim of in being a bona fide skill. Huzzah! Thanks for reading – you all are yet another reason why I love to paint. Cheryl.

Please note that this piece will require approx 3-4 weeks after creation and prior to shipping, to allow paint to dry and cure. Thank you!

I’m packing up my gear and getting ready to move into my booth at the Calgary Home & Design Show for the next 4 days! I’ll have a variety of my new artwork available for purchase, including ‘Ouzo Greek Taverna’, the painting above. I’m proud to have created this painting, as this little gem of a restaurant closed a while back. It’s good to know I’ve captured a little piece of the history of 4th Street in downtown Calgary.

Come by and join me at the show – I’ll be in booth 512, just across from the ‘M(Art)ket’. We’re in Hall C of the BMO centre on the Stampede grounds.

Show hours are: Thurs Sept 20: 4:00pm – 9:00pm • Fri Sept 21: 12:00pm – 9:00pm • Sat Sept 22: 10:00am – 9:00pm • Sun Sept 23: 10:00am – 6:00pm. For more show details visit calgaryhds.com/CHDS/ShowInformation/189.aspx.

Hope to see you there!
