On Monday my friend Esther and I met in Assiniboine Park to sketch. Esther had picked a spot with a great view of The Pavilion. We spent an hour and half or so creating our own versions of the scene.
Assiniboine Park has a special significance for my family. My parents got engaged in the park close to seventy years ago. My Dad was in the middle of his proposal when a guard knocked on the window and told him the park was closing for the evening. The Pavilion was also the site for my brother and his partner’s wedding over a decade ago.
Assiniboine Park was a great place to sketch. Esther and I have decided we will try to sketch together once a month. I wonder where we will go next?
