I can’t believe that in only a few weeks we will be celebrating Canada’s 150th birthday. A definite milestone. So much can happen in 150 years, but one thing that has really stayed the same is the beauty found all around us in the Canadian wilderness. You don’t have to be in the wilds of the Rockies to see just how amazing nature is, take a peek in your own backyard. You will undoubtedly find a very curious squirrel, a mischievous racoon and if you’re lucky a grey jay might even pay you a visit. There is so much to see if we only take a moment to look.
The Canadian wilderness, whether out in the forests or within our own backyards, is what inspired the beginnings of Mississippi North. To honour this inspiration Mississippi North will showcase all our prints at the Etsy Canada 150 Market in Almonte on Canada Day. So, if you want to check out all the amazing little Canadian critters or take a peak at some original art still in search of that perfect home come and visit!
Oh, did we mention that Sarah will be doing LIVE PAINTING! That’s right! You too can come and be creative by helping Sarah prep the canvas with some colourful spray paint. Then stay and watch as she paints one of Canada’s most iconic animals LIVE! Can you guess which one we’re talking about?
See you all there!
