I really dig this Chester Basin Sunset painting by Canadian artist, Louise Webber, who grew up seeing this site daily and it wasn’t until she moved away and came back for a visit, did she notice how beautiful it was.
Chester Basin is a town in Nova Scotia. It was founded by a guy named Clarence Chester, who had a saying, the world is your basin.
I initially thought this to be a positive adage, likening it to the infamous, the world is your oyster saying. But then I got to thinking, a basin is not an oyster and probably doesn’t contain pearls. A basin is like a tub or something.
So I looked it up, and I was right, it is a washbin.
So he’s basically saying the world is your tub containing your dirty water… which is true.
Louise is in the Saatchi gallery. She lives and works in Canada. If you dig this as much as I do, here is my link to purchase.
