ALGOMA BOREAL IV
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 a sense of wind and forest air and the feeling of looking at the sky through trees.
“Beauty is no material thing. Beauty cannot be copied. Beauty is the sensation of pleasure on the mind of the seer. No thing is beautiful. But all things await the sensitive and imaginative mind that may be aroused to pleasurable emotion at sight of them. This is beauty.” – Robert Henri (1865-1929)
