Killarney Ponds Series


East of the village of Killarney, situated on the north shore of Georgian Bay, Ontario, there’s an old lighthouse. The lighthouse sits on a rugged coast of red granite – wind swept pines, and is surrounded by the deep waters of the Bay, and the dark mysterious waters of the Lighthouse Ponds. This series of paintings is in response to many years of drawing and painting the Ponds. I have chosen to paint in the Abstract style – as it seems best suited to present the large dramatic shapes of the region – to fully involve the paint as the landscape dictates.
