3783 – River Guardian

3783 – River Guardian Acrylic on Canvas Panel 16 x 12 inches Framed River Guardian was started en plein air in Annie Williams Park, Bracebridge. I was attracted to the stature and unique character of this pine tree alongside the Muskoka River. It looks over the water, watching the comings and goings, of people and wildlife as if guarding everything in its domain. Share and Enjoy...

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...
