Final Surge


14 X 11'', oil on board


I could've spent all day working on this water.
The sun just gave me the usual amount of time though (maybe 2 hrs).

The waters are beginning to recede now. Our road is nearly no longer a river.
 You can still kayak in the garden though.

Hanging in there

The snow melt here in the Laurentians is in full swing at present.
 River banks are breached everywhere and many roads are closed.
 It is a common occurrence every Spring, apparently.

Annoyingly to me, the central icy island takes the shape of
a prepared chicken on a platter.
