April Dawn 30x40” oil on canvas. AVAILABLE AT META4 GALLERY Not just a puddle in a farmers field but Melt water on the Oak Ridges Moraine, that feeds the headwaters of so many of the rivers in Ontario. The porous Moraine is a natural filter purifying the ground water before it reaches the underground springs that are in abundance in this area. So many of my paintings are from this area that is so rich in springs, marshes and creeks. Sad to say this land is slated for development.
The headwaters of several Ontario rivers originate on the Oak Ridges Moraine, an important and protected geological formation. Many spring fed creeks and marshes can be found in this area and this marsh in King Township is one, and my inspiration for many of my marsh paintings.
These ancient quartzite mountains that run through Killarney Provincial Park can often have a pink glow. The large rock, the Monolith, is located on George Lake.
There is an advantage to getting up and out in the woods on a cold winter morning. It is the graphic elements and shapes of shadows cast by the morning light that the artist is drawn to. The reflected hues of sunrise pink and orange in the snow together with the cool blues and purples of the shadows create a visual excitement.
Along the Oak Ridges Moraine in King Township are a group of kettles lakes linked by streams. One such lake, Mary Lake is located on the property owned by a monastery. This small quiet lake is a favourite to paint by the artist because of the abundant birches lining the shoreline creating beautiful reflections.
The tall pointy spruces that dominate Mt Revelstoke are what inspired the artist to paint this scene.
