JoEllen Brydon’s titles are an integral part of her paintings, complete titles as follows:

Doctor Addie would come out in any weather to see people in their homes. He would tend to the sick, do the chores and cook their dinner.
24” x 30

Our neighbor, Mrs Cole, was a kind, friendly woman. She was as round as a beach ball. You could roll her down the street.
30” x 24”

Bob and Runner both loved to drive. They would go on a road trip to Niagara Falls and take two cars so they could both drive. Some days three cars would go.
30” x 24”

My father was the first in our town to issue licenses around the time of moving from horses to cars. Monsieur Mathiew would often drive around the corner shouting, “whoa, whoa, whoa”. We all ran out of the way. He had to drive into the ditch or he would have gone in the lake. Mama was not happy with Papa for giving Monsieur Mathiew his licence. But Papa was not a good driver either.
36” x 28” SOLD

The train came by every day at 2:15. The house would give a familiar shudder.
