Artists Spring

View at Cranberry Lake, Halifax County,N.S.

Spring creeps back onto the land as the warm southern air brings relief from the frozen winter. Ice and snow begin to melt and there is heat in the air. Sometimes, if the sun is out and the wind is down acrylic paint is once again useable outdoors.

Working outdoors is an aspect of art making that draws me back over and over again. I am not sure what it is about the process but as an artist I become strangely attached to the site, the materials and the record.
