I just got back from doing caricatures as one of the artists with ARTISTS ON RAILS. This is my second summer participating in the event and I hope to be invited back! I did caricatures on the VIA train from Edmonton to Jasper and back a couple days later. I stayed at The Sawridge Hotel in Jasper doing caricatures and painting in their lobby. I tried to "work" as much as I could and was tired at the end of the day but had a great time chatting with people as I drew them or as they stopped to talk. I met a lot of nice people visiting Jasper and Canada from around the world as well as great staff on VIA and at the Sawridge.
A big thank you to Marianne Garrah, the woman who came up with the idea of ARTISTS ON RAILS for Alberta artists. Marianne
is passionate about art and keeping the wildlife in Jasper from becoming extinct - please look up one of her other projects called TuktuPrayers - and travelling art exhibit of caribou art.
