There is a wonderful painter who lives in my city.
She has painted some famous people including one of our previous governor generals, medical staff helping civilians during the war in Afghanistan, and much more.

It was fascinating sitting for her as she tried to describe all of the visual aspects of painting in terms that I would understand. It was so great.

In the fall for Ottawa's Nuit Blanche the storytellers she is painting are going to stand in front of our pictures and tell stories.
Here is a photo of the painting she did of us.
