SLEEPING GIANT I
Oil and Wax, 16 x 20 inches
This is a painting of a well-known Lake Superior island (Sleeping Giant) depicted during a stormy evening. There is an intricate blending of subtle, cool colours throughout this piece which attempts to render the movement of early evening shifting seas.
“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)
