A Plein Air Painting
Mud Lake Oil
One of the first things I did up at Denare Beach was set myself up overlooking Mud Lake which is just minutes away from the DenarePlex, the site of the Art Retreat. A lovely setting, I was up on some pre cambrian rocks looking down at the lake. Out near the middle of the lake was a small outcropping were sea gulls and pelicans were hanging out. A supernatural experience. I found out when I got back that the conservation officers were out in the area trying to trap a rogue bear that was wandering around in the vicinity! I'm not surprised because there were blueberries everywhere you looked.
