Featured Art by Rob Zeer – ‘Bathers and Dog’


‘This 1×1 metre ‘Bathers and Dog’ was painted on the shoreline of Lake Okanagan in 2010.

‘I set up my easel on the shore of the lake, with background of an extinct volcano, the Selkirk Mountains behind but needed some ‘foreground material’. At that moment a young guy with his huge black dog and pretty girlfriend happened to be walking by and I instantly though perfect! They were thankfully very obliging to pose for some pictures taken with my IPad.

‘This painting is still in my domain to purchase, in case anyone is interested.’

~ Rob Zeer

‘Bathers and Dog’ is featured on the October 2017 poster of Surrey Muse.


Poster designed by Surrey Muse art director Mariam Zohra.
