Now that you are up in Canada, you should be converted to revering the Group of Seven, not just the Hudson River School. A fine introduction to their work is In the Footsteps of the Group of Seven, authored by orienteers Jim and Sue Waddington. I'm sure you can find many examples of their art in the Toronto area!
And since you're in Canada, you should also learn to bowl five-pins.
Unsurprisingly, I am a huge devotee of the Hudson River School.
I aim to inhabit the space where kitsch intersects the sublime.
