mini moose

Rain Lake : Day 6 after dinner

Last on my easel during our camping trip to Rain Lake in Algonquin Park this summer… 12×12 acrylic study of the view to the west of the cabin. I painted it on a canvas I had primed with blue, and I had used that canvas to wipe off excess paint… giving it interesting texture and…
