I am fascinated by the polar regions and Arctic cultures. I had this little vintage Canadian stamp, and used it as a starting point for this painting. Kimmirut is a very small town in Nunavut territory. It's one of those places I long to visit, but really, I have no idea what I would be getting myself in to. I know there is a lot of strife and struggle in these places, but the fantasy persists (in my mind) that people are able to hold on to their traditions and culture.
It's a sleepy Monday over here at Tiny Aviary headquarters. Hope yours is more caffeinated and alert!
