"In 2011 while wandering along the causeway, I stopped at Marty's art kiosk. I was fascinated by his colours, style, and originality. While speaking with him, I learned that he had been to Saskatoon and had taken a photo of my beloved Delta Bessborough Hotel, which I had grown up across from. He managed to find the photo as well as a sketch he had done, and he forwarded them both to me. I immediately commissioned him to do a painting of the scene, which I proudly hang in my living room and continually receive compliments on. I love sitting and staring at Marty's wonderful piece of art. It is a great conversation piece, and people love the artwork even if they are not familiar with the building itself. The painting brings back wonderful memories of the city where I grew up and also raised my own family. This is a great piece to have in my collection!"
