Kiwanis Place Carnival

I drew caricatures for the residents at Kiwanis Place during their Carnival. The weather was perfect and the Recreation Coordinator had some really neat things for everyone. The petting zoo was a huge hit and I was really busy drawing as well.

I’d never been to a senior’s residence event where there was a petting zoo and judging from the amount of people petting the animals … what a brilliant idea! Here are some of my favourites from the day. Residents and staff. The lovely lady in the hat is small in stature so it was fun to draw her down at the bottom of the paper. I think she was the one to give me the idea actually! We laughed together when I showed it to her and I got the best hug from her too! I’m thankful that one of the gentlemen took the time to take a photo of the two of us and send it to me.

 The photo of the two ladies is pretty neat because it is a mother/daughter team. Her mom is almost 104 years old. I said, “I’m sure you get tired of hearing this question but, what is your secret?” She said, “Oh, I have no more secrets!” Her daughter said, “Hard work, right mom!” Her mom was so neat to talk to! Such a great afternoon for me!
