I have chosen to paint a collection of 150 mini canvases : vignettes of Canada that reflect my personal connection with this beautiful country. These images will not be a collection of famous landmarks or people but reflect a more personal experience of Canada based on my own travels from coast to coast. It is spring in Canada and many of us wake up to the beautiful sound of the Robin. I live in Temiscaming and am surrounded by woods. Early morning's are still and the song of the Robin resonates through our small town. It has been a long winter and we all listen with anticipation as that sound represents new beginnings and rebirth and finally we can put that snowblower away...or not....it is Canada.
