Store

Painting Description

This painting was commissioned by the son of this store-keeper, and was designed to show the humanity of this couple who spent many years tending this cigar store. Located near the Kitchener train station at the corner of Water and Victoria streets, the store really was their home and many friends visited them there. Not long after this painting was unveiled, the old man died and this painting was shown by his casket. I was flattered that the family thought it worthy.
