Just Another Day Fishing
Summer in Haldimand County is a beautiful backdrop for the numerous wildlife creatures that frequent the area.
The blues I chose for the water and sky are very vibrant and portray an awe-inspiring summer day. The quiet, blue water, where the Heron is found fishing, is perfect for the reflection pictured under this wonderful creature.
The inspiration for this paddle is a Great Blue Heron. The bird is a familiar sight in Haldimand County.
When my son was younger, on a warm summer day, we would often be found at the “Grand Island Barbecue” (just across the bridge from the town centre) enjoying an ice cream cone and a quiet reprieve from busy lives. This spot was, and still is, frequented by the Great Blue Heron.
Even now, summer breezes will find me paddling in my kayak, looking forward to those days when I can happen upon one of these beautiful birds.
My hope is that you will find many quiet moments where you can refresh and enjoy some of the beauty that Haldimand County has to offer.

My paintings are little bits of me, moving from within me and out onto the canvas. Each painting comes from an emotional connection I feel with the painting’s inspiration.
