Ojibway Club Art Show 2024

Along the Shore

Additional Information

This is an oil on board painting. It was completed on sight (plein air) at an OSA retreat at Oak Island in Georgian Bay. The painting has had a coat of varnish and it is framed with an ash floater frame that I have prepared with a dark charcoal finish. It is wired and ready to hang.

Because the brushstrokes are so important to my painting language, I want them undisturbed, which is very hard to do in the bush or on the side of a rock. I had to devise a way to protect the paint from nature’s elements. When the painting leaves my easel on site, it will be finished. I do not touch up in the studio. So, the painting comes off the easel and is dropped into its own medium sized pizza box ready to be taken to my van. The fresh oil painting stays well preserved in its box during transportation and during the drying process.
