Canadian Artist

I have to tell you this story. I work 4 days a week.

I always love hearing - why - someone is buying a piece.

The other day a lady came in and bought an old school book. Her Father in Law - Adrian Dingle was one of the illustrators. He illustrated school readers, created a comic heroine - Nelvana - a lady - in the 1940's - quite a feat as - women were NOT heroine's and not much else - YET. He also became a self supporting artist.

Adrian Dingle - 1911-1974.

A lovely 'bloomin' wish. As Lucy wishes for herself, I wish for her also. And thanks for stopping by the mountain mermaid!
