canada day creative

This image isn’t about crowds or opulent celebration – but more about the selfless creative generosity of an artist. My son and I were downtown and we fortunately ran across this fellow who was painting on the sidewalk on the bridge that goes over the locks by the Chateau Laurie. Yes he was collecting cash for his hat, but our observation was that he was doing his art more as a gift for those visiting Ottawa for the big day today. We definitely gave him some money to say thanks, but he seems to smile more when we sincerely said a simple thanks – “thanks for your art!” :)
