Dr's Island - Southwest Miramichi - Blackville

Dr's Island, I am told got its name because a biologist had a camp there and he spent his time
cataloging the flora and fauna of the area.  Its a wonderfully relaxing spot on the Sou'West Miramichi.
Had the opportunity to watch a friend fish, a large Peregrine circled over head, took a dive then flew off with a trout. Spectacular and exciting.  This painting is a result of that visit.

Winter is still kicking around, but this is what is on the easel.....

The jar of fireflies is almost complete

Took me more than a year to get here, a lot of contemplating, staring
imagining ect ect ect. For most who know me, know that  a year and a half ago
my husband unexpectedly passed away in his sleep.  The same night the
yard was covered in fireflies that had hatched. The experience was magical
at such a sad moment.  This painting is dedicated to him, my greatest supporter.
He has been released from his earthly bounds with the fireflies into the heavens.
Miss him daily.

( That is my hand in the painting )
