With the approach of the Summer Solstice it seems slightly odd to be exhibiting a 'new' winter themed painting. This local landscape was begun late last fall when the first snow of the year fell over the autumn scenery. Just up the road a bit from home is where I caught a glimpse of the unique scene. The narrowed down colour palette is the key to this piece. Framed in vintage wood to continue with the warm tones, for sale and currently on display at the ArtBank Collective in Clarksburg, On.
Before resettling in the beautiful Blue Mountains region, I resided in the picturesque hamlet of Eden Mills and really got started as a fine artist, crossing over from my Illustrator roots. The place was overflowing with exciting subjects to paint and many of my earlier works originated from there. Across the road from my home was the Eramosa River and the remains of one of the original mills, converted into a private residence. This painting depicts the exit of the mill pond and was an especially colourful place in the autumn season, as seen here. Paintings can take you back and sometimes even take you to a place you have never actually been but feel like you had!

I used to live up the road from Eden Mills as a child in the early 70’s. I almost went through the ice behind that very dam one winter day! Great painting!
