Fair Day Saddle Race

Each year as a boy I was treated to all the anticipation and excitement created by the annual Caledon Fair in Southern Ontario. Just along the road from my grandparents home was the site of this annual event attended by hundreds of families from near and far. The saddle race, steam calliope, baked goods and the home made fudge table were highlights of the day.

Many years later these memories are revealed. I hadn't explored collage for years and using only a pencil on card stock the simplicity of the process struck me in a eureka kind of moment.
