Big prairie skies


What really strikes me about living in Watrous, Saskatchewan is the expanse of the sky and landscape, it seems like you can literally see forever. It is not totally flat, like some of the prairie can be, it is actually quite hilly. Because the vista is not impeded by large tracts of forest one has the experience of wonderful aerial perspective and amazing colour, even on gray days. I mentioned large tracts of forest because I am a born and bred Northern Manitoban, which is typical boreal forest country, interlaced with lakes, rivers, streams and swamps. One does not really see great expanses of sky unless you are on a large lake, such as Clearwater Lake, which is one of two "true blue" lakes in the world. The prairie grows on you and I look forward to painting it in all of its moods.
