OSA Lake

"O.S.A. Lake, Killarney Provincial Park"
30" x 48"

Inky rich blue O.S.A. Lake seems like it goes on forever even though it's not that big a lake.
The surrounding mountains protect it's inhabitants on a few canoe sites that great their
visitors with Islands of trees dancing in chorus. Evening paddles and leasurly swims in it's
depths quench the thurst of visitors. I have such a tremendous affinity for the bluest blue of
the lakes in Killarney on a sunny day.

Winter Solstice

Winter Solstice

Pine Island Channel, Killarney

30" x 48"

We usually snowshoe or ski around the Island during the solstice, but this year we were able
to kayak through the channel where there should be fishing huts and snowmobiles. As we
came back the ice was slowly freezing over. I painted from my cabin window and was
amazed that I was able to document the changing season.

In the Heat of the Day

"In the Heat of the Day Chikanishing Trail, Georgian Bay"

36"x48"

Artist in Residency, Summer 2015

When I work en plein air, there is nothing more authentic then catching moments of light. The canvas for this piece was paddled in by on Chikanishing Creek to the Georgian Bay in Killarney during my artist in residency at the park in July 2015. I settled in, covered to protect myself from the from the early morning and painted up until the sun was setting to catch the light throughout the day. It was so hot my paint scarcely touched the canvas and it was dry. Many people watched and visited and a one family even joined me to paint for a few hours. It was interesting to watch as the fishermen came for their daily catch replaced by families hiking and birds greeting the setting sun. Some work was added at a later date during the Killarney Art Show and Sale and in my studio.

Walk of Honey

"On the way to Lumsden Lake - Walk of Honey"
24" x 36"

Drinking in the colours of fall in Killarney is an amazing thing to do if you get the opportunity.
Cheerful colours, crunching leaves and rushing streams are what greet you instead of bugs.
There is ari like it.

Grace Lake

"Grace Lake"
24" x 30"

2015

This charming view is from site 179 has greeted visitors from before the days of the Group of
Seven. Carmichael and Jackson painted here and the lake echoes it's appropriate name. It's
narrow and small and surrounded by quartzite hills that are challenging and gratifying to
climb, anchored by slivers of rock dotted with pine. The paddle and portage in are well worth
it. The light, the sky and the weather frequently changes as the weather each time of day.
There is a lot of wildlife that inhabits this kalidascope for the sences and incredibly romantic.
I have never witnessed it the same way twice.

February Walk

 

"February Walk"
24" x 30"

A few years ago my husband and I camped at the top of The Crack in February. There was such beauty on the way there. The ice falls on the rocks looked like jewelry or pearls to me. I love how the iron from the rock coloured them. It was perfectly crisp weather and one of the most romantic times we have been camping. We camped right at the top.

Killarney Site 20

"Killarney Lake - Site 20"
24" x 30"

Killarney Lake is beautiful in the autumn. You don't have to paddle far in to reach a pretty destination. We have fond memories of taking our pup Buffy there. The time before this trip our oldest daughter brought a plastic English Golden and placed it on the rocks here. This time we had the real thing! Fond memories of that trip, beautiful weather.

Chikanishing View

"Chikanishing View"
24" x 30"

One of our favourite hikes, even just for dinner, is The Chikanishing Trail. The Georgian Bay at the middle of the loop offers spectacular views that include a small island. Like so many, we love to picnic there and wade out to the island over the sandbar and relax. Sometimes the sky is so blue it's unreal. I love how the trees grow out of rock and cling on through their years just like us. Surviving.

Pine Island Channel Silhouette

"Pine Island Channel Silhouette"
24" x 30"

This view is one we know very well. It's of the Pine Island Channel through a lovely screen of trees where our cabin is. I love how the trees move and grow and the life that they carry. We have seen wolves, bears, heron, bald eagle, and a myriad of birds through this place. My heart is there. I tried to capture the calm I feel while I'm there. I don't know about you, but I feel a change come over myself when I'm in Killarney. The minerals in the water on our skin softening it is the best spa I have experienced. It's a part of us that we take with us back where we live.
