Summer Gone

Oak Lake: November, 30"x60", oil/panel, (click to enlarge)

Grassy Narrows, 36"x48", oil/panel
It's feeling a lot like winter is coming here in Ontario.  The painting Grassy Narrows was begun in the summer when it was hot hazy and humid.  Many layers later the painting is done and the image harkens back to a beautiful summer gone by.

The top and bottom paintings are more in tune with the season.  The lakes are quiet now with the cottagers having packed it in for another season.  I like the stillness and calm, with only the distant cawing of crows to break the silence.
