Alone on the Ottawa [watercolour, 12”x9”]

Alone on the Ottawa

This is the view out the kitchen window of Matthew and Christina’s home in Petawawa, Ontario.  Framed by backyard shrubs and towering blue spruce, the view of the wide Ottawa River is spectacular.  The water level is quite low this week and I noticed this tiny island with a small, tenacious white pine tree growing on it.  This little tree looks much like The White Pine in A J Casson’s painting, a copy of which hangs in their living room. 

It feels like I’ve had a long break from painting and I’m looking forward to getting back into the routine and discipline…   soon.  Just now I am enjoying my visit in Ottawa.
