A Rainbow tunnel…

rainbow (1)

This was painted by a broken-hearted teenager named BC Johnson in 1971, after his friend, Sigred, died in a fiery car crash on the DVP, south of Lawrence Avenue East.

For Johnson, this memorial marked the one-year anniversary of his friend’s passing. Almost 50 years later, the artist still gets emotional talking about it.

He says,“When Sigred and I used to do walks here in the valley, she said ‘rainbows were smiles from heaven.’”

A befitting memorial indeed!

I first read about this on a blog by my blogger friend – Todd Tyrtle called Riding to Rainbows which has a lot more details about this place and murals out there! Thanks Todd, this really touched my heart…

Have a blessed day!
