When listening to a piece of great musical composition, a powerful feeling or sense of mood can be communicated from the composer to the audience, through the orchestral players. Sometimes it is subtle, sometimes booming, building towards a creshendo or fading off to silence. I like to believe that visual art can have a similar, even overlapping effect on its' viewers.
Looking to the west, from Meaford harbour on the south shore of Georgina Bay, I noticed with some regularity, depending on the wether of the day, magnificent and dramatic sunsets out over the spit of Niagara escarpment known locally as Irish Mountain.
With this painting, I hope that its' audience can also hear the riveting musical score playing in their head, while studying the piece.
