Paint, paint everywhere

This image of me was taken by Michelle at Place des Arts and shows me mixing the Angel Paints for the banners. After a bit of research I discovered that the paint most favoured by the banner painting groups in the tri-cties area, and with a long track record of durability, is the Angel Paints created by Jackie Haliburton of angelpaint.com. I was not disappointed. The colours are vibrant, the paint if easy to use, and I think the results speak for themselves.

Maillardville: Church and Family, 1910

Historical: Maillardville: Church and Family, 1910’s

In 1909 Fraser Mills sent a request to Quebec logging communities for trained workers for the lumber mill in Coquitlam. At that time the church was the heart the French Canadian culture so for the new settlers their first priority was to build the Notre Dames De Lourdes church on Laval Square in Maillardville (named after a beloved priest).  This banner was created in a folk art style to illustrate an earlier time period when order, symmetry, and family values were central to the spirit of the people.
