landscape acrylic painting

Description:

A landscape acrylic painting with a detached wooden frame that was painted by Teresa (nee Lokken) Summerskill and it was donated by Laura Burden. The painting depicts a meadow landscape (flowers, hills, pine trees) with mountains at the top and a river below the hills (having gray, green, yellow, brown, blue, red, purple, and white tinges). Teresa (Geraldine) (nee Lokken) Summerskill's parents were Jake Lokken and Vivian Lokken (who emigrated from Norway in 1930). She was born on November 11, 1924, and died on July 1, 2018. She married (Albert) Bert Summerskill and they built a house in Squamish during the 1930s and lived there all their lives. Beforehand, they raised their twins; Gail and Donald (Donny), in Pemberton for 4 years then moved and settled permanently in Squamish, where they welcomed their second son, Vern. Teresa was widely known for her "folk art" paintings, especially on saws, and was famed locally. Teresa had a passion for Norwegian history and was an active member for many years of the Sons of Norway, the Squamish Chapter Odin No. 95, and was also extensively involved in the Norwegian sector of the International Festival during the 1970s and 1980s. Another passion Teresa loved was music, as she played the accordion, piano, and the mouth harp. She also did all the maintenance work on her house after Bert's death, and participated in the Better Homes and Gardens with her rosebushes and her garden was famed as well. Laura Burden was her daughter-in-law and married Vern Summerskill. Vern had two sons named Brendan and Brody from a prior marriage, and Laura and Vern had a daughter, named Kelda Summerskill.
