ALGOMA BOREAL II
Mixed Media, 16 x 20 inches
Triptych (panel 3 of 3)
The inspiration for the Algoma Boreal series was dawn light in an Algoma region (Ontario) forest as clouds were clearing after a heavy rainfall. There is often a slight greenish tinge to the light if it is warm after a heavy rain. I wanted to convey the dampness of forest air and the feeling of looking at the sky through mist and trees as a storm is passing.

“The presence of the object, the motif, is very disturbing to the painter at the time he is painting. Since the starting point of a picture is an idea, if the object is there at the moment he is working, the artist is always in danger of allowing himself to be distracted by the effects of direct and immediate vision, and to lose the primary idea on the way.” – Pierre Bonnard (1868-1947)
