I have the highest regard for the Canadian painter Tom Thompson. His paintings inspire me to try harder to succeed at my quest to paint well. This painting had its genesis in the landscape around Manitou Beach, SK. I haven't had much time to paint outdoors lately, work gets in the way but I try my best! Hope you enjoy, and for my European and other worldly readers please Google Tom Thompson and have a look at what he accomplished in his short life, you won't be sorry.
