Ontario sketches

Last October we visited Ontario and I was able to sketch three buildings, one in Toronto, a second in Waterloo and a third in Kitchener, my home town.

The Gooderham building is an iconic flatiron landmark inToronto.

The post office building is seen duplicated throughout the small cities and towns of southern Ontario clad in stone or brick or as here in combinations of both.

The Market Square building sits on the site of the old Farmer’s Market where as a kid my family would shop for fresh produce and summer sausage from the Amish farmers and their horse and buggy wagons.

  1. Great sketches. We visited Kitchener decades ago and found it a very interesting place as I was and still am into quilting. The Amish do beautiful work. I remember those buildings you drew. Thanks for sharing and bringing back lovely memories.
