Recently a lovely couple from White Rock came into my gallery as they liked my loose style of painting and commissioned me to paint 2 paintings. This is the first of 2.........the original cabin that sat on their incredibly gorgeous view lot in White Rock overlooking the pier. I lived in White Rock and love this view. Their new contemporary home is amazing and this is the original cottage that sat on their lot. The next commission they want me to paint is a street scene of White Rock to decorate their living room wall in their amazing home. Quite the challenge and to be honest a little stressful for sure. Commissions are always stressful.
They originally purchased a painting of mine depicting a back alley of White Rock and it gracefully is displayed in their beautiful kitchen.
I was so happy to know that my latest oil painting of the historic Reid Building built by Charles Reid in 1923 was sold to his grand daughter. Her father, Don Reid, recently passed away at the age of 93 and this painting will be on display at his Celebration of Life to honour her father and her grand father. Such wonderful history.

Charles Reid was born on April 24, 1888 in Scotland. He emigrated to Canada in 1908. Two years later he settled in Fort Langley and opened his own blacksmith shop. Later, he became one of the first machinist shop operators in the area. He served on the Langley Council during the mid-thirties and early 1940's and was a member of several municipal advisory committees in the early days. Charles was the first chief of the Fort Langley Volunteer Fire Department, a charter member of the Fort Langley Community Improvement Association and an early member of Trade. Charles also served overseas during WWII for four years with the Canadian Army Engineers. He married a pioneer Fort Langley girl, Olive Carter, and raised a family of three children, including son Don and daughter Helen Gardner (husband Bill). He was in the business for 60 years; he saw it change from horse shoeing and wagon repairs to motor mechanics and heavy equipment repairs. Charles Reid died on May 20, 1975.

Come and join us for our first "Art in the Park" exhibition at FLATIRON, Bedford Landing, Fort Langley. Judy Nygren, Pat Barker Art of the Pencil Studio, as well as myself, Susan Galick Artist, will be holding our first exhibition as a group. Please join us to mingle, watch us demo plus listen to awesome jazz music by local musician Dave Quinn of RazzMaJazz. Our galleries will also be open.
Dave Quinn will be performing a duo of jazz from 1:00 to 4:00 pm. RazzMaJazz is a popular local band playing each Saturday at Leləm’ Arts and Cultural Cafe.
Located in the award-winning community of Bedford Landing, the FLATIRON shares the name of New York’s iconic landmark. While most people think the building got its name from its resemblance to a cast-iron household iron, in fact, the triangular area where it was built, contained by Broadway, Fifth Avenue, 22nd Avenue and 23rd Streets, had been known as the Flat Iron District, long before the building’s construction.
You will find the Flatiron in Fort Langley, located across from the Bedford Channel and the Fort-to-Fort Trail.
It was so cool to see my commission painting of Fort Langley displayed in the owner's home. Cindy and Gary own a millwork company and Gary created a beautiful custom frame on the 18" X 72" oil painting. Cindy has a wonderful sense of style and definitely knows what she wants. I went to their home and took photos of their decor, room size etc. and started painting.
Since then we have all become good friends and have shared several wonderful evenings together.
