A Day of Art at the Lake
Debbie and I spent Saturday with some artists that we met this summer at Sylvia and Peter's cottage on Lake Erie near Selkirk.  I was a day filled with painting, wine, laughter and friendship.  I always thought that painting big water would make for a rathe...

What a Great Summer
I have been camping and painting for almost six weeks.  It has been very hot but also quite productive for me.  We were camping in various parks from Killbear near Owen Sound all the way across to Neys Provincial Park near Marathon (almost to Thunder Bay)  ...
