The Nature of Things

The Nature of Things

Written by JaimeKristal Lott

Let your artistic ability shine! Whether it’s through painting or photography take to the outdoors and capture the beauty of nature as you enjoy some fresh air.

Over the past year, we have all discovered a new appreciation for nature. Being able to breathe in the crisp fresh air, the feel of sunlight as it trickles through tree branches to warm our faces, the awe-inspiring sight of the sky changing colours until fading into the gloaming hour. That sense of peace that comes with being at one with the natural world. Witnessing these simple miracles would make anyone want to capture the moment and keep it forever.

For those with artistic ability, and those who always wanted to learn but have not yet taken the time, you can pick up some art supplies from Barratt’s Office Pro. Whether you prefer sketching, painting, or working with pastels you will be set for a stroll along the Riverfront Trail to find the perfect spot to create your own interpretation of the view.

As not everyone expresses themselves by what they can create with their hands but rather with their eyes, Roluf’s has a variety of photography equipment such as cameras, lenses, film, and memory cards. From ducks and herons in the river to flowers growing and trees budding to murals on store walls to the beautiful old buildings on Front Street being restored, there are so many different angles and new perspectives to find downtown to get that perfect image.

 Though you may want to keep your creations for yourself, should you wish to gift your masterpieces to friends and family you can see about Roluf’s custom framing too. Or you could also look into getting your artwork into a show at the Parrott Gallery, join the Belleville Art Association, or become a part of the Bazaar Artisan Market community.
