Mesachie forest is another of our favourite places.  It is such an enchanting place with trails

that take you from old growth trees in the lower bench then winding through the upper levels and back

down to the lakeside trail.  The other side of the forest is plantation and you can walk along the tracks 

there and see the different trees.  Both forests are home to a variety of creatures big and small 

and at times we have been fortunate to see them on our walks.

This painting measures 23.5 x 31.5 inches and in done in oil.  Available for purchase at $650.   

Thank you for stopping by, JJ

This painting is almost a direct copy of the painting 'Autumn Garland' by Tom Thomson (1877-1917),

with a few changes and a log added in the foreground.

Mr. Thomson was associated with the Canadian group of seven and he painted his particular painting in the years 1915 to 1916.

Although his painting was done on a much larger scale, this painting is just 16x16 inches.

Painted with acrylic over canvas and for purchase at $250.    Thank you, JJ.
