ALGOMA BOREAL III
Mixed Media, 15 x 19 inches
The inspiration for this work was light filtering through trees in an Algoma region forest. This area of Ontario covers about 28,000 square miles and is home to the Canadian Shield and boreal forests. There are many canyons, waterfalls, vistas, rock cliffs, lakes and rivers. In this piece, I wanted to capture the feeling of light filtering through trees.
“There are forms that can only be seen when you are near a canvas, others only appear when you are far away. To paint is to know how to put nothing on a canvas, and have it look like something when you stand back.” – Robert Henri (1865-1929)
