Cullioure north studio, june 29, 2010

An unbelievable day in the north, it feels more like fall than summer. Last week I saw garter snakes, black bears, heard the loons sing, even endured the constant droning of mosquitoes, now all there is is rain and wind.
My studio these days is cool and tough to work in, but I persist. Claire and I set up my work at the train station in Temagami, in the box cars there, unique and interesting.
Tonight I am posting an image of a painting I am using to advertise my show in Temamgami.
