Today I spent the whole day with Fran Aeyelts showing him around Yellowknife.  It was a great day. We had a fabulous lunch at the Museum Cafe.  We saw all the highlights…though we didn’t get him his north of 60 certificate.  I will do that for him tomorrow.

11.07.13 A Day with Frans 1Checking out Old Town but it was far to treacherous to walk with all the ice.

11.07.13 A Day with Frans 1aBest road name in all of Yellowknife!  Maybe in all of Canada!

11.07.13 A Day with Frans 2Off to the Legislative Assembly where we even got a person tour with MLA Daryl Dolynny! Great to see all the art that we can’t access normally during a tour.

11.07.13 A Day with Frans 3Then up to see the houseboat from Pilot’s Monument.  The ice is forming quite well and soon folks will be able to walk to their houses.

11.07.13 A Day with Frans 4And the best photo of the day ! Yellowknife skyline behind Frans.  It was a great day.  We ended with a public talk about his very interesting life before he committed to doing art full time.

Back to painting I go.  Frans is off to Behchoko  tomorrow to work with young people before he is back here to teach for 3 days.

See you on Monday!
