THE ROCKS TELL STORIES (2014-2015)

This series is about a place that is extremely special to me. It feeds me. As a matter of fact, I never, EVER set out to become a landscape painter (figuring there were enough Group of Seven-esque works out there) but this area is so incredible that the desire to study it has become stronger than me. (I even wrote a major physical geography paper on it when I was finishing my BEd a few years back!) Some may say it looks like the moon's surface on earth except that it's filled with all kinds of life. You simply have to look for it.
