We were excited to be able bring our residents and the artist Pat Wellon together at Muskoka Landing over the course of 3 days. Pat is renowned in the community for his amazing skills and talents and our residents were in love with the prospect of being the subject of a portrait.

Family, friends and residents enjoyed coffee and tea as they watched the artist compose masterful likenesses of those who sat for him and listened to his stories. "He had many great stories to tell, travelling the world to sketch people of all walks on life, and now he is here. Just amazing."

All who were involved in the days of his visit had nothing but positive things to say, "Wow, what a talented man" and "I just loved sitting and watching him doing his art!" Not only were there amazing results on the paper, there were gigantic smiles on the faces of the residents and families.
