Painting Minas Basin

Such a wonderful view looking out over the Minas Basin. On this day in November the sky began to open allowing light to stream down over the bay.  The stormy sky and the water current drawing out towards the Bay of Fundy was revealed. There was so much to take in, shape and colours defining the moment you would think was special. Not too long after making the work I was taken aback when I saw a copy of a watercolour work made by a military officer in the 1700's. His work made note of a very similar sky and was made in a location not far from where I stood. Suddenly the work took on a whole new life and meaning.
