SILENT WATERS I
Acrylic, 10 x 12 inches
This painting was inspired by an early morning canoe ride while on a trip in the interior of Killarney Provincial Park in Ontario. The lake was calm, and the fog had just begun to lift. It was that magical time of transition when the mist was clearing up, but the water was still calm enough for me to be able to discern reflections of a nearby small island. I knew then that this scene would one day become a painting.
“No way has been devised for measuring the value of a work of art. History proves that juries in art have been generally wrong. With few exceptions the greatest artists have been repudiated by the art juries in all countries and at all times.” – Robert Henri (1865-1929)
