DRAGONFLY - 6.5 X 9 - SOLD
In my last post, I mentioned that we stayed with friends in a cabin on Great Slave Lake. Dragonfly was built by them over the last few years. It is a lovely cabin on a small island in a group called Pilot Islands. Howard, one of the owners tells me that much of the material was taken out in the winter with a skidoo and trailer. It would be stacked and used in the summer. Other things were brought out in the summer with their power boat and it was fun manhandling things like a stove or fridge out of the boat, on to their dock and then up over the rocks to the cabin.
Shoreline Sketches - some were made as we were trolling
A project like that is hard work, but comes with a real feeling of accomplishment and of course lots of stories. After hearing all of their stories it really gave me a desire to venture up north in the winter and see what life is like. I really want to see an ice road, ride on a skidoo, see the northern lights in the winter and see the ice and snow in the setting sun. My brother tells me March is a good time to visit so don’t be surprised if I head off next winter!!
Dave & Cindy's Greenhouse, we got lots of fresh cherry tomatoes from their patio garden
Quick sketches as we drove back from Fort Providence, I love the rocks and trees. The scrawny thin trees are so fun to draw. So much personality!!
