                                   This painting is called 'Carmichael Revisited' because
                                   it's based on a scene the Group of Seven member painted
                                   in 1939. It's of course a waterfall near Nellie Lake. I
                                   have abstracted the scene considerably with lots of
                                   scraped surface texture and collage. The photo is
                                   good but doesn't quite pick up the richness of the
                                   burnt orange tones. Lots of fun. I'm working hard
                                   for an exhibition at the Pumphouse Art Centre in
                                   Niagara on the Lake during the month of May.
                                   More to follow regarding this.
