VICTOR LOTTO

Dawn and I visited Victor Lotto at his home studio on Cotswold, in the Uplands, near the Pollens…

Victor Lotto could give Robert Amos a run for his money if he were to compile his numerous local scenes into a book or two like the Times Colonist resident artist-critic has done.

In any event, I believe Mr. Amos is a fan of Mr. Lotto’s work, as apparently is incumbent Oak Bay Councillor John Herbert, whose campaign sign was out front, along with those of Hazel Braithewaite for Mayor and Kevin Murdoch for Council.

Victor Lotto’s studio is ideally sited toward the eastern morning light, overlooking a mysterious Uplands Garry Oak grove surrounding what he said was the only clay tennis court in Oak Bay.

Victor’s studio is cluttered with numerous examples of his prolific output, primarily acrylics and watercolours of buildings, landscapes and nature studies.

We bought three of Victor Lotto’s reasonably priced note cards of L’Academie Sainte Anne (Saint Ann’s Academy) for $7.00.

“I’ll vote for you now!” quipped the congenial Mr. Lotto.

“I heard nothing, Victor.”

‘Goyo de la Rosa’ recommends voting for Gregory Paul Michael Hartnell for Oak Bay Council!
