Kennisis River - just below Log Chute

16" x 20" acrylic painting sold
This is the painting I was working on when the photo of me was taken. It is just below the log chute looking down stream. In the spring the place where I was able to set up is under water.

Kennisis River below Log Chute

12" x 16" acrylic painting $225

This is one of the paintings I was able to do on site at the Hawk Lake log chute. It is about a 5 minute walk down river from the chute, then looking up river. A nice place, even had a bench to park all of my painting gear.

Painting at the Hawk Lake Log chute

This is me painting on site this past fall. I live in such a beautiful area it is hard to chose where to go to paint. I went with another painter, Karen Sloan (she snapped the picture). We had a great day and I was able to do 2 paintings that day.

Spillway on the Matagmi River

10" x 10" acrylic painting, $150

I spent most of the past summer in northern Ontario and this is one of the places I visited. It is near the hydro dams on the Matagami River north of Kapuskasing.

'Summer Sunset' -Remi Lake, Ont.

'Summer Sunset' Remi Lake, Ont.
8" x 10"
I worked this painting up from a photo that was taken one evening when my husband and I were fishing. (I don't think we caught any thing) The sunsets on the lake where our cottage is are great. The fishing isn't bad either.

'Spring is here - Almost'

16" x 20" Acrylic sold

This is a painting of the ravine behind our house. It was one of those days when it felt like spring was just around the corner. I grabbed the camera and went out to get some shots. I like to paint the contrast between the ground and the snow.

'The Roots of Summer"

16" x 20"
These are roots of a very large pine tree along the trail at the Hawk Lake Log Chute. My husband and I went hiking there when the log chute restoration opened. An interesting spot with lots of history. I wanted to capture the cool 'greeness' of the place.

'Abandoned Boat House - Boshkung Lake'

11" x 14"



This little boathouse on the north shore of Boshkung Lake, like many abandoned things has been torn down. I am glad I was able to paint it before it was gone.

Along the trail - Frost Center 2

18" x 24"
'Along the Trail - Frost Center 2' is actually along the hiking trail at the Frost Center on St. Nora's Lake, not far from where I live. My husband, son and I were hiking here on Thanksgiving weekend of 2006. Maybe it was the company and or the place, but it made an impact on me. A very beautiful spot.
