"Just Charlie"
Private Collection
Charlie is Charles Spratt, an artist living in Manotick just South of Ottawa. Well known through out Canada, he is also an accomplished guitar player.
One year, while I was exhibiting at the Manotick Spring Art Show, I was able to take a photo as he was playing with his band for the opening. In 2006, this painting was chosen for the Morton Baslaw Award.

"A Boy From Britannia"
Private Collection 

From a photo by Don Wigle, A wildlife photographer and contributor to the Ottawa Citizen. Thank you Don, for your kind permission to use the photo.
What I found rather unique was the camera angle. Almost at water level, but Don is an avid kayaker.
