What Nature provides for an Artist


We took a drive to Bathurst today with my camera in tow of course. Being new to the New Brunswick area, I am searching for subject matter.

Just before Bathurst I saw it, a wonderful bog alive with colour.  I believe this is Labrador tea blooming. If am wrong, please tell me the correct name.

Gorgeous gorgeous colour as far as I could see back into the bush.  The contrast of the fuschia and the new green on the trees.

An artists eye 'catches' the special  view and then we try to translate back what our experience was. That is what an artist is, someone who is trying to share their experiences with the rest of the world as they have seen it.

I have lots of photos and will be painting from this experience.

Thank you spring, thank you Mother Nature !!
