“My old pal Laurel was a provincial wildlife biologist. The department offices were moved from Toronto to Peterborough, giving her the opportunity to purchase a country property with its own lake, stream, forests, and the remnants of an old golf course. Using Google Earth, I took photographs of her 178 acres. Focusing on part of the shoreline where the stream connects, I used that composition to produce this abstract interpretation. Texture, relief and motion were created by applying linen, burlap, acrylic paint thickened with modeling paste and pumice onto canvas.”
