I had fun drawing while waiting for the Train.
my spot for painting at The Sawridge Hotel in Jasper.
I was keeping myself warm by the fire - everything was so nice.
I spent some time painting and now it is almost complete.
EVERYONE, The VIA train trip home was so much fun. It left me on a real high about the whole trip. In the Activity Car I started drawing people and I didn't stop, even finishing up a caricature after the train stopped in Edmonton. There were two tour groups onboard, one from the United States and another from Britain. The whole Activity Car was full of people playing games and many waiting for their turn to get a caricature. There was such a energetic feeling the whole time - with lots of laughter. The tour guides thought that it was such a great idea to have me on the train and thought it'd be great to have me on again. I think they will enjoy the other artists just as much. When my family came up to help me with my belongings, a few people said, "So you're the young lad she has to go home to. You know we were trying to keep her!"
I think that it was a real added bonus for the passengers and it gave them an amusing memento of their train trip across Canada. I met so many interesting people that have traveled to many places and they LOVED Jasper National Park of Canada. Of course, who wouldn't!
I had never taken the train before and it sure is a first class way to travel.
Thank-you so much to the Artist on Rails, for the opportunity to make this train trip.
