The Gill’s Place

12×18″ | Oil on Plywood | Janet Davis 2011

This is a small commissioned piece that I did which I guess has been unwrapped by now.  Hopefully it is being enjoyed in its new home in Nova Scotia.  The property pictured belonged to Edwin Gill and then his son, Gerald Gill.  It sits overlooking the Atlantic Ocean in Newtown, just a ten minute drive from my studio.  This house and the people who have lived in it have been an important part of my childhood and what led me to appreciate  my heritage.
