Sketches of Saskatoon
Share the friendly splendour of Saskatoon! Snapshot mementos are dandy, but something extraordinary happens when everyday sights and scenes are captured through an artist’s eye and hand. Saskatoon native Patricia Katz has painted an artful journey that weaves its way in and around her beloved City of Bridges on the South Saskatchewan River. Sketches of Saskatoon features over 40 candid works in ink and watercolour. They deliver a colourful stroll down memory lane, highlighting the city’s charm and beauty at every turn. This book is a delightful way to share the city’s friendly splendour with family, friends, and colleagues—newcomers and old-timers alike. And you’ll find that Sketches of Saskatoon makes a picture-perfect gift from one of the most beautiful destinations on the Canadian prairies.
The artist will donate a share of the proceeds from each book to Saskatoon charities, making it a gift that keeps on giving.
