The dimensions of the painting are 8 x 10 inches, and it is signed by the artist lower right. It's titled verso "Cabbage Town, Toronto" in pencil and bears a gallery label. The painting depicts a house on a sunny, suburban street, and it's painted in Armstrong's bright and colorful post-impressionist style with visible brush strokes. ALSO INCLUDED is a fine copy of the first printing of Garth Armstrong Northward: A Retrospective SIGNED by the artist on the front free end paper (ISBN: 9780986854804, 74 pages). It was produced with decorated boards and no jacket. The book reproduces paintings by the artist of scenes of Northern Ontario which are divided by season. The brief Introduction is written by the artist and each seasonal section opens with the artist's comments on a featured painting and insights into his style and approach. LAID IN to the book is a holiday greeting card with envelope created for The Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto which reproduces an original painting by Armstrong entitled "Walking in a Winter Wonderland." The card and envelope are unused, and the card is blank inside. The painting is held in a vintage wood frame with a plaster surface of flowers and a hobnail border painted gold (outside dimensions 15.25 x 17.25 inches). Some of the plaster has chipped away. Garth Armstrong graduated from the Ontario College of Art & Design in 1983. He is a member of the Ontario Society of Artists and Oil Painters of America and represented Canada at the 2018 Salon des Beaux-Arts at the Louvre in Paris.
