This is a plein air painting from the summer. The lake is located just north of Parry Sound, near Georgian Bay. It was and extremely hot and humid day, so a swim up to the island was a great way to cool off.
This one is dedicated to all the hockey moms and dads whose kids have had a 7am practice on Saturday and an 8am game on Sunday...ALL WINTER!!! I still have two in hockey this year as opposed to three in previous years. Yes, I love the game. Not allowed to cheer anymore though as my youngest now elbows me for causing a scene. Today would have been a write off had I not finished this one. I did start four others. I was so happy to get this one done that I rushed to take a picture of it just now and post it right away. Time for a cup of coffee and a book. Hope you enjoy the painting as much as I do.
I'm an artist and daily painter (well I try to post daily) from just north of Toronto, in Canada. I paint portraits or figures mainly. I am also using this venue to explore some different ideas and techniques. Please contact me by email if you are interested in purchasing one of the paintings you see on my blog. I do accept online portrait commissions working from photographs including commissions for portrait miniatures. Please email me for further information. Thanks for visiting!
