Red Hot Forest

16"x16"
Acrylic on Canvas
SOLD

I visited the McMichael Gallery yesterday in Kleinburg, Ontario,  home of Canada`s Group of Seven.  It is amazing to stand in front of such beautiful, inspiring art.  What is marvelous there is that it isn`t always the large scale, well know pieces that grab you, but the little gems, that were painted outside on site so many years ago.  One painting that grabbed me, that I had not seen before was Lawren Harris`  `Shacks`.   Though the reproduced image in the link does not do the painting justice.  You must see it in person to truly appreciate it.  Like all art!
