In the summer of 2012,  I was invited by Sherry Brydson to live and paint on her summer island  in Georgian Bay, ON.  Georgian Bay at Honey Harbour is comprised of an archipelago of tiny pink islands of rock set in a biosphere reserve. Some of the islands are called The Lizard or Umbrella . The rocks made up from the folded roots of ancient mountains are celebrated by the indigenous culture. I would take my tiny tin boat out to these different rock islands and often paint the lone separated trees that battle the harsh elements . My dear friend and sculptor Adrienne Alison would often be my guide and join me painting plein air.
