I drew this for my new friend Dan. He’s been staying at the lodge for the last month, but he’s leaving this week to go back to Vancouver. Dan takes really nice photos and I’m secretly hoping he leaves me a print. I’ve been really into making small watercolour painting/drawings lately. It brings me back to grade two, when I took after school art classes at the Robert McLaughlin gallery in Oshawa. The fact that I am using the same paint palette as then is a testament to how much I’ve actually painted in the last 15 years… but I am happy to be back at it.
