There are so many beautiful areas in Ontario, and the Kawarthas is up there with the best. Viewing this tranquil scene of one of our northern lakes almost compels you to take a deep breath, and relax, no matter how briefly you are taking in the "view". A gorgeous waterscape, skillfully captured by this Ontario artist with loose strokes and generous colour so typical of the northern light.
Gallery canvas 12" x 16" framed in a black painted wood float frame. Due to the size and nature of the piece, it is not available for shipping. View in gallery at Cedar Lake Studios, 27 Ainslie St. N. Cambridge.
The Artist: A Kitchener native, Janice Saunders graduated from the University of Waterloo, with a BA in Fine Arts. While raising five active boys, she focused on fine art photography as her primary medium, and then later returned to painting in oil and acrylic. She enjoys painting both en plein air and in her home studio, and her subject matter includes landscape, still life and some figurative work. When asked to describe her work, Janice replies, “I have always worked in a painterly style and I love colour and pattern. I am drawn to the gesture, not the detail.”
Janice is also a graduate of the Independent Studio Program at the Haliburton School of Arts, and a graduate of the Humber School for Writers.
