Red Art Gallery is doing themed shows this year. For March, artists were asked to do a painting related to a song lyric. Wow, so many wonderfully visual titles to choose from! It thought of ‘Riders on the Storm; ‘Somewhere Down the Crazy River,’ ‘All Blues.’ Anything by Nick Cave…another strong contender was Tragically Hips’s “Yawning or Snarling,’ but I wasn’t sure too many people would know the lyric.

In the end, I decided on the upbeat, poppy, “Downtown” by Petula Clark, as I wanted to keep with my urban & signage trajectory. Still, all those others still would be worth doing. Another day. Meanwhile, here’s “Downtown,” 24″ x 48.” Now at Red Gallery in Victoria, $1980.
