Hand of God -plein air

Posted by on Oct 12, 2012 in Blog | No Comments

The colours this year are breath-taking. This was the view from our cabin at Opeongo Mountain Resort near Eganville where 16 artists from across Ontario converged for 6 days to paint ‘plein air’ (paint from life). I chose a higher ‘eye level’ to get away from a static looking horizontal line of the waterline, I like organic forms. After an interesting evening critique with the artists, someone pointed out the cliffs’ resemblance to the hands of God which I quite liked, as well as the ‘paw prints’ in the sky. Note the 3 white seagulls flying past the cliff… I often try to include some animal life in a landscape… that’s what my eye sees.
