Aviation museumPosted: January 3, 2016
There’s more to this building than meets the eye. It houses the Canadian Aviation Heritage Centre, but from the outside you might not know the treasures that are displayed inside. “The Old Stone Barn” is part of MacDonald Farm and I’ve painted it many times, from many different angles. As often happens, I’m never there at the right time to visit the Centre, but it sounds intriguing (art gallery, memorabilia, artifacts of both civil and military aircraft). I had originally hoped to paint a watercolour on site today but the snow was coming down heavily and with no plows in sight I feared getting stranded on the farm, so I sketched instead.
