Ottawa artist David Cation resumes painting after losing two fingers
An Ottawa artist is starting to paint again after losing two of his fingers in November.
David Cation is a longtime artist known for large, vibrant paintings with dark themes made by painting with both hands.
In November, he lost two fingers while using a table saw to cut wood flooring for a downtown hair salon.
He’s recovered enough to give painting another try and plans to open an erotic art gallery in a back room of a downtown store just after Valentine’s Day.
