Hermitage Ruins Not History Yet!

The Hermitage Ruins have a little more time before the future is decided.

The Permits sub-committee was to hear the request by the Hamilton Conservation Authority to demolish most of the surviving walls to a height of 3 feet.  Apparently, more people wanted to attend the meeting, so the meeting has been re-scheduled to May. Hopefully, the HCA will use the time to reflect on the value of the property and decide to do a proper restoration as their consulted had suggested.

#HamOnt – Westdale House Sketch Update

Here is a short video update on my Westdale House Painting Sketch.  This is the second of six house sketches from Hamilton, Ontario.  I prefer on site sketching but because it is winter, these sketches are done from photos that I took over the past 3 years.
