You call that art?

I bought some art! My friend is closing his antiques shop today for good. I have had many fine conversations with him over the years as I walked by his lovely shop each morning on the way to work. I have always admired this lovely watercolour but it was way out of my price range. The artist is Richard McDiarmid and he is from right here in Vancouver. I have no idea how old this is but looking at the back of the framing tells me it is maybe 20 or 30 years old. I don't really care how old it is or how famous the artist is, and the fact that it's worth well over $1000 and I paid a mere fraction of that makes me smile. I just really like it. I don't think the photo does it justice. I have a special place to put it but it can't go up yet. It's all a part of my bedroom beautification plan. I will keep you posted.
