Bob Cain is a Hornby Island resident who takes pictures and maintains a website. The picture above was taken in 1986 and is called "Mushroom Beach," which I believe is in Helliwell Park. The picture below was taken in 1979 at the Vancouver Art Gallery exhibition opening of Hornby Island resident Jerry Pethick, and features Hornby Island residents Darlene and Jeffrey Rubinoff. The painting to the right of Rubinoff's elbow is by non-Hornby Island resident William Featherstone and is called Les Enfants Du Paradee (1979).

While driving to Hornby Island yesterday I passed the Fanny Bay exit sign and thought of the artist George Sawchuk (1927-2012).
Last year the Comox Valley Art Gallery mounted an exhibition of Sawchuk's portables, as well as a selection of his drawings.
Part of the exhibition included an event at Sawchuk's home. Although his Forest Gallery is a highlight, I am also fond of his studio, which his wife, Pat Helps, has faithfully preserved.

A small room inside a bay window. A single bed, a table and chair, and a sink. I could manage something larger, with more conveniences, but I could never match the view.
The sink is white, and once, when I woke up in the middle of the night and saw the moonshine on it, I thought it was an iceberg, and I -- The Titanic!
