Fall Still Life Cottage Painting


Original image size: 22" x 15"
Framed to size: 32" x 25"
Original watercolor painting price: $2,000.00

Prints are available in many sizes and styles

This still life painting of cabin objects includes goose decoy, life jackets, canoe paddles, fishing poles and basket, snowshoes, rocking chair, Hudson Bay blankets, bird houses, boots and guitar. The red maple leaf that has blown in onto the window sill signifies that summer fun is over for this year and autumn has arrived. The fisherman's hat will rest here until next summer.

Escape from daily hectic life in the summer sweltering cities of Southern Ontario often means a mass exodus every Friday on highway 401 north on highways 400, 11 and 69 to cottage country. Bracebridge, Haliburton, Muskoka, Parry Sound, Gravenhurst, Huntsville - these names conjure up summer swimming, kayaking, canoeing and boating fun, lazy days of floating on a raft in a sun-drenched lake, happy sounds of children laughing, belly-flop splashes, sizzling burgers on the barbeque, evening stories and sing-alongs around a bonfire. This is heaven - this is where the heart is.

Inquiries welcome!
