Time at the easel is always time well spent and this was the case today. I spent most of the afternoon working up a large oil on board from a small oil panel that was painted on location in 2005. It was during the summer, I was in Kejimkujik National Park in Southern Nova Scotia canoeing in the backcountry when I came across the famous, “Haystack Rock”, a huge granite boulder left behind from the ice age. Kejimkujik National park is a canoeists dream, lake after lake of wilderness, with island campsites, portages through old growth forests and the possibility of viewing some truly wonderful wildlife.
The small oil panel has long since been sold but I always like to keep a photographic record of each work, which is what I used today. Here you can see the smaller 8x10 sketch and the new 18x24 piece painted today, both above.
