An Online Artist's Coop for Artists who Paint on Location
The National Capital Commission (NCC) is a Crown corporation of the Government of Canada. Its goal is to ensure that Canada's Capital Region is a source of national pride and significance.
Sylvio Gagnon is a plein air artist who lives in Ottawa, the capital city of Canada. He paints just about anything, anywhere. He just loves to paint. Some artists paint for a living but this guy lives to paint. Fame and Sales are not much on his horizon line. That comes automatically if you are happy doing what you do.
This video is the latest produced while he painted on the Rideau Canal in February 2011. The painting was donated and sold at an auction for the benefit of a charitable organization.
Come out this winter and meet the artist on the canal. Best regards.
