I spent a crazy hot day in Minto park with over 70+ other vendors, musicians, and neighbours having an absolute blast. It completely reinforced that the Ottawa Arts Community is exactly that – a true community. They really work to bring everyone up, collaborate, trade, and encourage. It was fantastic.
I got to make a wonderful trade with another artist for her beautiful watercolour prints – she loved my Ursa Major / Ursa Minor print – and now we’re Instagram chums. I finally got to meet an artist in person whom I’ve been admiring from afar. It was so lovely. And best of all – I got to spend the whole day with my fantastic neighbour. You can’t get that kind of friendship just anywhere. It was truly an amazing day, and so worth the heat.
