The Parry Sound Group of Five Plein Air Painters

I had the distinct pleasure of painting with the  Parry Sound Group of Five Plein Air Painters - Six if you include me - ladies all enthralled with Canadian art and the beauty of Canada - Parry Sound in this particular instance. Four of the ladies were also Docents for the McMichael Gallery in Kleinberg. Imagine sharing a campfire on starry night with artists passionate about Tom Thomson and the Group of Seven. I was able to tell a few stories and listen to many more. These opportunities are rare if not impossible to imagine. However, it was my distinct pleasure and honour to paint with the Group of Five - remember that both Five and Seven are prime numbers.
How this outing happened was either a miracle or an accident. It is almost impossible to plan something that turned out as excellent as this.  The following are the demonstration pieces that I painted while in Parry Sound - in chronological order.  I do hope that you will enjoy them.

1667 Pine Curtain

I had the opportunity to paint Limberlost in early October. The colours were just turning but still inspiring. Here are the efforts from that paint-out.
