This is what I’ve been working on for the last week or so. I also have a sketch done in my Travel Journal, but it is needing some color…and I’ve done a bunch of ACEO’s, too.
This picture is really about Bella Coola’s history. The building is the old cannery net loft. It has long been abandoned, but used to be a huge part of the industry here. The inset is from the Bella Coola archives, it is a Nuxalk woman mending the nets…I love this view of the net loft. I have about fifty photos of it, in all different weather, and times of day. I live in such a beautiful place!
