A Celebration of Place
This is a 40 x 48 inch Oil on Board portraying in a mystical, whimsical way the land around which I live. Manitou Beach, SK is a jewel of a place. The lakewater is saltier than the Red Sea and many people come from the world over to bath in its waters for the healing effect. I believe the air has some subtle qualities as well that most people don't talk about but to me it seems to enhance colours, sound and consciousness. Now, that might just be the artist in me talking but there are people who speak about how good it feels to be present here.
