“Inspired by Canadian Folk Artist from Nova Scotia Maud Lewis”
- Maud and her husband lived in poverty without indoor plumbing and with only oil lamps for light. The wood stove was their only source of heat for both cooking and living.
- Most of their money came from the sale of Maud’s artwork. She painted the outside and the inside her house – stairs, windows, wood stove, the bread box, a dustpan & serving trays
- The house was so bright and colorful many people stopped on the road to admire the painted daffodils on the windows, bluebirds on the storm doors and the butterflies and swans on the inside door. Later, tourists and travelers from all walks of life were attracted by her hand-painted sign offering her wares for sale. The house is now with the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia
