watercolour 12″ × 16″ on Arches rough paper

This is a self-portrait. I am sitting in a folding chair, on Pumphouse Beach at Terrace Bay, Ontario, on the north shore of Lake Superior, looking at a small island which seems suspended in a blend of sky and water.
I like to eat my lunch here.
On this day there was no wind, no waves and not a sound except for the occasional loud screech of a seagull.

Born in Essex, England, living in Canada now, north of Lake Superior in Schreiber, Ontario.
Painting in watercolours since I was 8 years old, and after a career in the field of photography, mostly with Konica Canada, I am finally an artist, full time.

    This looks like my favorite place on the lake near my home. I like the front row seat there too. Nice watercolor work! ;)

    You have made it seem like a very quiet place- almost surreal.
