LOL!!! Oh, the mental image of Emily Carr in a swimsuit calendar made me laugh.
There is a statue of her and some of her pets (a horse, a monkey...) in town and a couple friends and I were in the area, and as always I had to go look at it as she has been a favourite artist since I was a child. One of them looked at it, said "Wow, she was ugly!" and I hit him. For one thing, it was an older version of her they modeled it after. For another, who gives a fig? Her art was amazing!
