New Westminster artist Greg Freedman’s works are on show until the end of Friday (April 6) at the Granville Fine Art gallery at 2447 Granville St. in Vancouver.

Before retiring to take up painting full time, Freedman worked on the tugs with Seaspan, and later as a captain of the Seabus that plies the waters between Lonsdale Quay and downtown Vancouver.

“Working on the ferry boats and the tugs was often monotonous,” says Freedman on his website.

“But I kept myself interested by searching for things to paint in the industrial environment I spent so much of my time in and the juxtapositions that add flavour to daily tasks.

Finding those things was my challenge while working on the boats—recreating them on canvas is my challenge today.”
