My Recent (Virtual) Camping/Kayaking trip

Like all of the Alberta paintings I’ve done since the pandemic confined us to Vancouver Island, this painting is based on photos taken by my daughter. She and her family camped at this idyllic location, a 4-kilometre kayak trip along the lake, a couple of weeks ago.

I have been to that lake for real, though not in a kayak actually I’ve never been anywhere in a kayak and wrote about a spectacular climb up from there to Rawson Lake

BTW, my daughter mentioned that the Rawson Lake trail is closed this year because there are grizzlies in the area.
