An unattributed - and highly speculative - painting, the artist who produced this work was obviously a highly competent, able hand. A difficult perspective has been captured with confident brush-strokes, complimented by a well selected and balanced palette.
Algonquin Park, Ontario, has some of the most glorious landscape in Canada, and is home to bears, moose, common loons, and the famous Whisky Rapids Trail.
