Calm Day, Sulphide Lake

Calm Day, Sulphide Lake

As I browsed through my photos Saturday evening I came across a shot from the "Canoeing and Painting In The Wild" trip last summer. The treeline and reflection really captivated me (which must be why I took the picture in the first place), so I stayed up late and painted my interpretation. The forest in the area had really taken a beating by the Spruce budworm and, as saddened as I was by that, I found it beautiful; the ravaged forest co-existing with new growth. I find it amazing that trees, grasses, weeds and plants can spring up on such an unlikely rocky terrain.

Don't you love the artist's mind? Yours is so wonderful. Your sympathy, and love of nature sings out of every painting. I love this one.

XOXOXOXOXOXO Barbara
