He willed part of his estate to the Federation of Canadian Artists to be sold for the Federation's benefit. The Heffel Gallery in Vancouver has been auctioning the works off for the past few years. There were also a large number of artist cards in the estate, printed in colour from his oil paintings. The four images on this page are scanned from original greeting cards purchased from the FCA gallery. These cards are the B.C. scenes from those cards, there were also a number of paintings from eastern Canada and the Rockies.
