Rising early I went down to Cedar lake to watch the mroning mist. Jean Pederson was done there herself collecting her own references for such mystical scene.

Glorious Beech Trees 3.jpg

A scene from our cottage road about 100 yds from the cottage. The beech trees are very stately in the fall, with just their trunks as silent sentinels. The shadows of their branches cast lyrical shadows.

Rosseau Falls

Wendy and I went out plein air painting in the fall. It was bloody cold to say the least, and our easels caught the wind rushing up from the lake and blew over regularly enough to drive us away to finish our paintings at home.

Chippewa Falls

This painting was my contribution to the CSPWC Diploma Collection housed at the Peel Gallery in Brampton. Everyone elected to the society is asked to donate one painting to this growing national collection. I stood at this huge falls for three days to paint this piece. The sound of the water was very relaxing.

Tough old Beech
Tough old Beech

Sometimes one is inspired by the work of others and in this case it was a painting by Jack Reid at my wife's school. I reframed it because it was falling to bits, and then I was inspired to try something like it myself. Jack wins!

Historic Skagway Inn 2011.jpg

We painted for a day at Skagway in 2012 before catching the ferry going down the Marine Highway to Juneau and beyond. The garden full of poppies and the contrast of the hills in the background attracted me to the painting spot. It is hard to do justice to such a remarkable spot. We stayed at the Inn overnight.
