James Bay - Emily Carr House

Emily Carr is one of Victoria's more famous personages both as an artist and as a writer. The house where she was born in 1871 and where she spent much of her life is in James Bay and is open to the public. Many of her paintings, including the two below, are in the collection of the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria.

Emily Carr reminds me very much of Grace Carpenter Hudson, who lived in Ukiah around the same time. I think I've got someone talked into doing a Ukiah Daily Photo blog within a few months, but here's a link to the museum:

Dong, thanks for your comment and also for your insights into the Philippines in your blog.

USElaine - Thanks for the links to Ukiah - Haiku and Grace Hudson. Yes, she does appear to have had a lot in common with Emily Carr
