Main Beach, Waskesiu

Last weekend I delivered five new paintings to Lifestyles By Darrell Bell Gallery after they had a busy month of May for me. I love painting these panels and I look forward to finding new subjects and inspiration for them.

The title of this painting gives the location away, but hopefully even without the title anyone who knows Waskesiu would recognize this view. At the main beach, if you stand on the boardwalk by the public washrooms and look to the left, this is what you see- a small cluster of pine trees near the playground and the boat dock and breakwater jutting out into the lake. In the distance you can see Prospect Point (otherwise known as "Snob Hill") where the golf course is... as well as some of the largest cottages in the park. It is a pretty classic Waskesiu scene... so I decided to paint it. Maybe it will make the perfect keepsake for someone after a visit to our province, or maybe it will make a perfect Father's Day gift for someone who loves Waskesiu.
