Buzzard Lake Dawn

I was up a bit earlier on Friday morning - just as the sun was climbing above the hills to the east-northeast. The night was not chilly at all and the water was warm. I went for a swim after I completed the painting.

Painting in the Kawarthas with Wilson Street Art Retreats

I keep reinventing the wheel trying to figure out better ways to transport oil paintings while on canoe trips. This last invention worked very nicely. There is something to be said being away from technology and out in the woods.
The line of showers and thunderstorms had passed Buzzard Lake allowing the sunset to illuminate the eastern shore opposite camp site 423. The lighting is magic for just a short time period and I wanted to illustrate capturing those colours in plein air. The camera cannot do justice to the brilliance and intensity of these very transient colours. This is number 1424 on a 5x7 inch panel.
One should always take a meteorologist on any trip to keep you safe from the weather...

Round Bale Cumulus

I was on the look-out for some fresh landscape and found it just north of Forfar, Ontario and south of Highway 15. I pulled into a freshly cut hay field and enjoyed some quiet time painting. The slippery surface of the sealed and gessoed panel forces one to be loose and fast. I think that sometimes that also forces one to focus on what is important and to let the rest slide - so to speak.
I was using my new system to paint on slippery surfaces. I keep trying to re-invent the wheel for this kind of thing. I did not get any paint on myself or the car... life is good!

Fluid Forecasting

Meteorology is everywhere. The lines and swirls that shape the clouds reveal the secrets behind their creation. The same thing happens in any fluid. One just needs a tracer substance to make them visible. Duck weed works just fine.
