October on the Lake

October on the Lake

20″ x 16″ Acrylic

Last October, we were blessed with some beautiful sunny days and we didn’t hesitate to take advantage of them including some family hiking, canoeing and walks down to the lake.

This was our first fall in Elliot Lake, a time I had eagerly looked forward to. It had been at least 40 years since I had experienced a northern autumn and I looked forward to the brilliant reds that we didn’t see as much in Southern Ontario. Many Elliot Lakers were disappointed in the lack of intensity and brilliance of the fall colors this year. It was blamed on the long and rainy summer and the warm fall weather that didn’t include the usual amount of frosty mornings and cool overnight temperatures.

Despite that, the fall was a wonderful time, and we can’t be happier in our new home in Elliot Lake.

I’ve been happily rediscovering this lovely city and the natural beauty that surrounds it. I think growing up here, I took so much of its beauty for granted. I plan to continue exploring all the area has to offer.

I’m excited too, to be showing this painting and offering it for sale in the Elliot Lake Arts Club Annual Christmas Show & Sale, along with my blank note cards. It’s just the beginning. Stay tuned for more!

Cost: $150

Autumn Path acrylic painting

Autumn Path acrylic painting

24 x 36 acrylic on canvas.
Note to self: always finish what you start! About 3 years ago I began this painting. I couldn’t seem to find a way to complete it, and even wanted to paint over it and start fresh. A good friend and an artist gave me some good advice once when she said we should never leave a painting unfinished.  I feel a tremendous sense of accomplishment with “Autumn Path”.

It’s a reminder that even though it sometimes is a battle, if you keep at it you will find a way to finish what you began, and the results are so rewarding!!!  And sometimes just taking a break from a project and stepping away for some time helps to see it in a new light.  A painting or project may be abandoned but never totally forgotten.

This painting is an autumn path at Allan Park which is located off of Hwy. 4 between Durham and Hanover, Ontario.  It was a favourite path that we walked in many seasons and holds many memories.
