I was painting with Lawrence Nickle in the spring of 2011- This is the fifth painting of my spring break-out paint out with Lawrence Nickle. On day two of the Nickle Paint-Out we headed to the South Magnetawan River and stopped when the Forestry Tower Road got too soft and sloppy. Lawrence was leery of getting his truck stuck in the mud. I certainly concurred. I painted from the wooden bridge looking southward toward the shaded hillside. The sun was on my left shoulder. It was a beautiful spring day. The sounds of nature woke up with the sun.
