sketches and anticdotes about my interests and travels

This is an elegant home in the Glebe neighbourhood of Ottawa that has a strong prairie style architectural influence. The facade is asymmetrical and the windows relate to the internal layout. Each corner of the porch roof gutter is drained by bronze fish gargoyles - of course in this weather the fish grow icicle beards.
The front door and foyer are all I drew as it is too cold to expose my hand for more than 10 or 15 minutes and I find it too cramped to draw from my car.
