ALGOMA BOREAL II
Mixed Media, 16 x 20 inches
Triptych (panel 1 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.
“If your attitude is negligent, if you are not awake to the possibilities you will not see them. Nature does not reveal herself to the negligent.” – Robert Henri (1865-1929)
