Moonlit Tip of the Canoe
This painting notates our spectacular CANADA 150 Birthday journey of the Canadian Shield at Pukaskwa Reserve near Thunder Bay. Pukaskwa National Park (designated 1978, 1877.8 km2) is bracketed on the west by the coastline of Lake Superior, an impressive stretch of massive headlands and beaches of golden sand or water-worn cobble. This work is a panorama of colour capturing the spectacular moolit scene which has a thick rich impasto quality applied with palette knife. The original photo is also available for print on large scale archival high gloss photo paper or canvas. The park is quintessential shield country, an ancient plateau of granite and gneiss riddled with rock-rimmed lakes dissected by tumbling rivers and covered by dense boreal forest.
