December toons

The Peak is only running 2 toons this month – other issues taken up with kiddie art and other riveting holiday stuff. So here they are, fairly self-explanatory I think.

I’m also attaching my latest 2 paintings (I’ve become semi-obsessed with lily pad ponds for some reason). Apologies to those who’ve already seen them on FaceBook.

Merry Xmas to all, hope you have a wonderful holiday.

love, wendy

The new wastewater treatment plant project has been on the books for years…

and then of course, there’s this:

The first painting, Lily Pond, acrylic on canvas, 16” X 16”

The second, Lily Pond – November, acrylic on canvas, 24” X 24”

sorry – better size TOONS

On examination, it seems some of the groups getting property tax exemption in PR might not be totally legit…


November is celebrated in BC (and all of Canada?? USA?) as ‘Movember’ – men grow moustaches for testicular cancer or something. C’mon, I don’t have to know EVERYTHING!!!

And – the Liberal Cabinet was announced yesterday.

2 Toons for October

All pretty self-explanatory except 2nd one – our hospital hasn’t had anyone running the cafeteria for several years. They’ve now contracted with our only local food truck to serve tacos outside the hospital at lunch time. Weird, but a solution I suppose… (and the City was enticing seniors to come and give input for ANOTHER study on Senior’s Needs by offering a free lunch)

2 toons

Very funny!
Dear Wendy,
You do such good work.
I enjoy your character drawings, I love the person
or i find pity in them. I wouldn’t want them to live next door to me.
Powell River is extremely lucky to have you.
Love,
Enoch

This toon is about the upcoming federal election – the paper ran blurbs from the candidates, among whom was some idiot from The (so-called) People’s Party – he managed to use the word ’narrative’ 3 times in one paragraph.
Happy Fall

A few million things got in the way this month, so here are the July toons (with explanations where needed). Hope all are having a swell summer!

PR holds a very popular weekend event called Logger Sports – contestants and tourists come from all over Canada, even from other countries to compete. It’s great fun watching them pit themselves against enormous logs, race to the top of huge upright tree trunks, carve hideous ‘art’ pieces with chain saws – the town is now littered with enormous wooden Thors, mermaids, dragons and the like.

There are twice as many black bears within the PR City Limits this year as last – and there were a LOT then! It’s not uncommon to come across a bear or two loping across the main drag in the middle of the day. We have a lot of bush and a lot of fruit trees…so the town is in process of passing a bylaw allowing electric fencing inside land owner’s property lines. It doesn’t kill anything but does give them a pretty strong jolt.

And finally, people camp. I guess for me, you can take the girl out of the city, but…
over ’n out,
