The Queen Mother

This watercolour painting shows Charles Hepburn Scott top right, and his sister-in-law Grace Melvin top left, with Fred Amess as the infant on the Queen Mother's lap. Grace is holding a book titled The Complete Book of Textures. The Queen Mother has tentatively been identified as Mrs. Katherine Ashworth, the owner of the Royal Savary Hotel. This painting is one of a folio of original issues of The Savary Pudding, a broadside created by Vancouver School of Art summer students on Savary Island.
