I may be biased, but I’m fairly certain that I live in Canada’s most beautiful city, which also happens to be our capital. I moved here just under 4 year ago for school, and initially thought I would be getting the hell out the second I was done school. Winter here is COLD and I don’t do well with cold. But then summer happened, and I fell hard for this city. My reasons why Ottawa is the best city:
1. The Rideau Canal
In the summer, you can bike along it for miles. In the winter, you can skate on it, right up to a BeaverTail booth. Year round, it breaks up the downtown and makes for beautiful views and beautiful sunsets.
I’ve been a little absent from this blog but now I hope to be back to a regular posting schedule. I’ve got big plans for this website coming in the next few months, including ways fellow artists can get involved so stay tuned 🙂 It will be the best art website you’ve ever seen. Promise.
Adjusting to having a ‘real job’ has been new to me after all these years of the student life. I don’t love waking up to an alarm every morning but I certainly do love having evenings and weekends to do as I please.
The painting below is a commissioned one that I began back when I was still living the dream as a student at Ottawa U. It was supposed to be a Christmas gift from the man in the picture to his wife, but then turned into a Valentine’s Day gift. It’s nice and huge and therefore took a solid chuck of time to paint. But that’s okay, because bigger is better.
