Another painting from Frontenac Park. The path comes very near the lake at this spot and disappears in the distance. I liked the play of light and shadows. I'm also trying to work on water reflections and this gave me a chance to do that as well.
I currently have a new guitar. And a very fancy one at that.
Every time I take my guitar out of its' case somebody climbs in and gets comfy.
Apparently it is THE place to be even if you have to cram your big black self into the tiny space the guitar neck fits into. Of course that brings you closer enough that you can poke your buddy and get him to leave.
And then you can have the big spot all to yourself to relax in.
Went for a lovely hike in Frontenac Park and sat for a while talking with a friend beside this former heronry. Was lucky enough to see a pair of herons but all of the dead trees except one have rotted off so they have moved the nesting ground elsewhere. Found out that they coexist peacefully with osprey. The osprey are the strong arms and the herons are the warning bells. The light changed here gradually as we sat and talked. But two things continually caught the eye. The fallen tree in the sun light and the colours of the interestingly shaped sky reflection in the water. The birds were way back in the corner of the pond and you could hear them squawking but you could only really see them if you knew where to look. Fortunately we had seen them land.
