Hey, another Vancouver Islander!
This thread makes me want to brave the Canadian currency crisis and CCARA to try some Kirby paint! With our dollar at .63 US plus shipping and customs, we're likely to pay about twice list price when the stuff arrives, but if it's as good as folks say, it would probably be worth it. We spoke with Mr. Kirby when we were looking for Alerion Green for a project last year, and he was very helpful and gracious. Time constraints precluded ordering from him then, but he generously shared the recipe for the color with us.
And Peter - welcome to the Forum!
