If you don't already know him, please let me introduce you to Victoria, BC artist Bill Blair. You can see photos of his work on Flickr here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/billblair/sets/, and check out his much-needed blog, "New Stories for Paint-by-Numbers" here: http://paint-by-numbers-stories.blogspot.com/. The photos of Victoria locals shown here feature beautiful paint-by-number backdrops created by Bill, and these backdrops will be part of a paint-by-number themed show, "Bumber by Number", at the Bumbershoot Festival in Seattle on Labour Day weekend.
The last two photos shown here are of my MIPs - OMG, I just made that up BTW- it stands for " Most Important People" (or Peeps, if you prefer). Judging by the youthful appearance of both daughter and husband, I'm going to guess that these photos were taken 10 years ago or so. Ever since the photos of my MIPs were taken in front of the paint-by-numbers I have wanted to see the others, and finally I can lay that yearning to rest.
