Firstly, thank you all very much for your messages and requests today!
I didn’t know what I was getting into by mentioning Keith McKellar. I have had lots of requests asking for more posts about him and his work.
Lots of questions also about my meeting him in Vancouver, too. Well, truth of the matter is I only had a very brief meeting with him when I was staying at the Patricia Hotel
At the time, he was busy setting up his work outside on the street, next to his van, and when I had a look, there were already lots of people looking at his art displayed on one side of his van.
This article here from the Prince George Citizen newspaper describes his work and his life very much better than I ever could! Do have a read if you can. Very interesting.
Funnily enough, my post has triggered much discussion amongst readers as to what actually makes a person a Bohemian. I like the definition given by the BBC of London..here is what they say…
Another website, criticalcactus.com gives their version of what defines a Bohemian…I love the bit about wearing different, unmatching socks…..I’ve been doing that for years myself! Perhaps I should class myself as a bohemian, too!
Hope this post goes some way into defining the style and the life. Feel free to post your comments on this subject too….I promise to repost them those I like the most!
