Ross Penhall's Vancouver combines stunning imagery, tribute and personal history to create a portrait of the city through an artist's eyes.

     In addition to paintings of Vancouver, there is a chapter on Surrounding Areas that focuses on the scenery of the Interior, Vancouver Island and Coastal British Columbia. The final chapter, Places That Inspire, includes paintings of the Pacific Northwest of the United States, the Canadian Prairies and landscapes from Ross' travels abroad.
     For lovers of art, for lovers of Vancouver and for anyone who looks for beauty in the everyday world, Ross Penhall'sVancouver is a book that will continue to captivate readers long after they first open it.
