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.
“The most beautiful art is the art which is freest from the demands of convention, which has a law to itself, which as technique is a creation of a special need.” – Robert Henri (1865-1929)
