Shantz Homestead

Painting Description

The focus of this painting, circa 1920, is the family’s dairy wagon. The site was the homestead on the present Ottawa Street, Kitchener. A big-box centre now replaces this farmyard. It was also important to the family that I include their 1917 Auburn near the house. This painting was made very special for me when the wife of the man who received the painting told me this, “I have been married to this man for well over 60 years and this is only the second time that I have seen him cry.” Clearly this painting brought back many more memories than I could have imagined. I was happy that my piece was so well received as these people have been collectors of my work for over 30 years.
