Occasional thoughts,reminiscences and ideas from the artist Darrell Baschak

The title "Sleeping Giants" was something that I picked before I began this pastel. In my visits to the Mistik Creek and area I am always struck by the beauty of these Pre-Cambrian rocks protruding from the earth that they are so much a part of.... In the winter they are covered up in the most beautiful ways, the snow dresses them with soft blankets that conform to their profiles perfectly. Imagine that, nature being perfect! Hope you enjoy looking at the painting as much as I did creating it.
