Summer 2017 Dumoine River Art Camp

The Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society (CPAWS) -Ottawa Valley Chapter (OV) will be hosting their first annual Dumoine River Art Camp from August 2-7, 2017. The Art Camp will bring together artists working in different mediums and from communities across Eastern Ontario and Western Quebec. Applications close on April 30, 2017
I will be there painting with Aleta Karstad. It will be fun! ...
Here is the CPAWS website link with all of the details ... more fun than a flipped canoe!
Here is a sample of the work I create en plein air while on a canoe trip... I think it important to have a meteorologist/weather person with you on every outing :>)

For more information about me... and my art - Chadwick Art House.

Canoe Lake Paddle 2016

Life is all about place and for me, Canoe Lake is one of those special places. I paddled between 19 and 23 kilometres on Sunday October 2nd 2016 around the perimeter of Canoe Lake. Apparently it took about 7000 paddle strokes to go the distance. My forty-six Canoe Lake paintings based on that paddle tally to 3291.7 square inches not counting the larger panels based on those smaller works. I am sill painting those larger canvases.
The circled numbers on the map of Canoe Lake indicates the location of each of those paintings. There are still some gaps and I need to go back and 'phil' those in.
The Canoe Lake Pilgrimage Paddle Paintings can be found at
