11 x 15 inches, acrylic and pencil on heavy printing paper.
From one of my brief lunch hour drives into the countryside just outside Port Hope. Early afternoon around April 10th.......a fast moving cloud came sweeping through.

Nothing gives me more pleasure than to see my work well presented in someone's home. It also brings the creative process full circle. On a winter day I stopped to diagram this scene at Rice Lake, painted the piece later that day, lived with it and studied it for a time....and now it's gone far away to live in the lovely home of Katherine Humphreys.

The white sand and variety in elevations always interests me when I pass this site....sometimes I stop. It's been defunct for a while and is properly covered over.

Recently the Millbrook, Ontario printmaker, George Raab gave my some various sizes of Arches paper that he couldn't use for his large prints, and I'm really enjoying painting on the unprimed surface; it's very intimate and responsive. In some cases a thin wash goes in as an undercoat, and sometimes a last stage of pencil work is used to help tie things together. The little paintings seem to be getting a bit bigger...yikes!....but still not bigger than 11 x 15 inches. Thank you, George!
