It's Cottage Time!

This painting is of the cottage where my brother and I spent most of our summers growing up, near Perth Ontario.  It holds happy memories of swimming, boat tours around the lake with Grandpa, picking raspberries, frog-hunting, BB guns, and hammocks.  During a cottage painting retreat with Cheryl O, I chose a photo reference from years ago and tried out a style similar to Emily Carr.  I thoroughly enjoyed working on it, which has taught me how important it is to choose a photo reference that is meaningful.  I doubt I will ever sell it!
