ROUGE VALLEY I
Mixed Media, 15 x 19 inches
This work was inspired by a late day walk near the mouth of the Rouge River in Rouge National Urban Park in Ontario. This bank of trees near the shoreline was blowing in the wind and the surf was washing up.
“The artist stands face to face with nature without thinking of himself; he receives everything from it, lets himself be impressed by it without afterthought, and abandons himself to the joy of contemplation.” – Paul Collaer (1892-1989)
