Artist Comments:
Siwash Rock is a famous rock outcropping found  on the northwest side of Stanley Park in Vancouver, B. C.  A legend among the indigenous Squamish Nation surrounds the origin of the rock.  It guards the entrance to Burrard Inlet and  Vancouver Harbour.  The view in the painting is from the seawall looking north toward West Vancouver.
A plaque near the rock states that it is "Skalsh the unselfish" transformed by "Q'uas" as a reward for
unselfishness. - I attach an image of this plaque.
