Peter Doig Country Rocks 1998-99

Here’s a wonderful painting by painter Peter Doig. Although he no longer lives here, he spent many a year as a child growing up in Canada, so we consider him one of our own. This image is a very familiar sight for anyone traveling up the Don Valley in Toronto. Happy Canada Day.
