3789 – Stone Fountain in Fall

3789 – Stone Fountain in Late Fall Acrylic on Canvas 12 x 12 inches Framed One mid-autumn morning, I joined a small group of fellow painters at the Rotary Gardens Park in Bracebridge.

Moose Marsh

3782 -Moose Marsh Acrylic on Canvas 24 x 24 inches SOLD In the fall of 2019, after dropping off paintings at the Algonquin Visitors Centre for the ECOAA, Mystery of the Park exhibit, we stopped on Hwy 60 with a huge crowd of people to take photos of a moose family in the marshy area south of the highway. They seemed undisturbed by the attention and I was able to get a number of great shots of them. It’s one thing to capture a single moose in the wild but to have the thrill of an entire family was a once in a lifetime experience. Moose Marsh was created to enter in the 2020 ECOAA Mystery of the Park exhibit that will be held October 2-November 1, 2020. Click on this link...
