This painting Majestic, represents the first painting in my Signature Series “Algonquin Adventure’s”
Making the trek up to Algonquin, Highlands every year sometimes several times a year. My husband Kevin and I would enjoy this area so much with its massive land, abundant lakes and all the creatures that call it their home.
During our adventures, we would do just that adventure. As well, I would take some time to sketch and this quickly turned into painting en plein aire. As soon as I would see something inspiring, we’d stop right away and off I’d go!
We sure have seen some amazing places and creatures. The day we saw Majestic come out of the deep woods to eat in this abundant flora, I knew I was hooked. This painting began! Respectfully observing our chance encounter, no one else around for miles, in total bliss.
We began, documenting with sketches, pictures, videos and short writings of where we saw this wonderful creature.
Taking notes on what we noticed about him most and what we would enjoy to share.
We felt renewal of mind as he could live on with our story telling, pictures and paintings. Hence, the series grew with each passing sighting.
Our blog was created and our hope is that you too feel renewed while enjoying each of these animals’ stories and learn more about them along the way. The paintings are heirlooms!
