Opeongo Sunset, Oil on canvas panel 9”x11”

This summer I did a lot of pencil and felt pen sketches during a trip to Algonquin park. I forgot about them and just discovered them again this week. This is based on one of them.

It is very hard to paint an Algonquin park motif without somehow raising the ghost of Tom Thomson. I tried very hard to avoid that, but at the end, I still seem to have channelled him in this one.
