This is a hotel just up the road from where I live in Sudbury, Ontario. I see it all the time but never thought about drawing it until this winter. I was driving by and the light was perfect. It’s for sale and not currently operating as a hotel so the parking lot isn’t plowed but there’s someone living there. That white van is always parked there. It makes me wonder what goes on there and who lives there. What are they doing? I thought it would make an mysterious piece. It seems very Northern Ontario to me.
So many places look more interesting to me in the winter. There’s a convenience store in the adjacent lot that just might be next on my list of illustrations to come.
