In the mid-1990s the consignor's parents were on a sailing trip to Haida Gwaii, which Doris McCarthy was also on. She painted about five paintings on the voyage, one of which was this small watercolour of the lush vegetation, which she inscribed on verso:
"Bishop…It will be special fun to share it with them. He took very interesting shots of the creatures under the water in the narrows. I remember the Garlick name - I can't visualize Margaret - but please greet her for me. I'm delighted that you enjoyed my books. Margaret Garlick would recognize many of the places and people in "A Fool's Paradise."
