For the last few years I’ve gotten to draw in the museums of Ottawa because my daughter was going to school there. This past weekend was the end point of that part of her life as she graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Ottawa. We went there to spend some time with her and to attend her graduation.
I didn’t make it to any of the museums because we spent the weekend doing more exciting things, like laundry, shopping and grocery shopping (grin).
It was a hectic weekend, made a bit more unsettled by the fact that high humidity and high temps combined to provide a near constant threat of thunderstorms. There was even a tornado warning at one point.
As it turned out, we didn’t see a lot of rain but there was a lot of wind. We did sit in Andrew Haydon Park, though, and I did some quick sketches. It’s hard for me to spend much time on sketches when I am with other people who are not sketching.
