There was no time to post this painting before we left for Buckhorn (I was working on it right up until we left). It is the newest in the traditional sports series that I've been doing this year.
My father told me of making homemade skis, and of bending the tips in a vat of water. He used these to ski across the fields to school.

Happy Summer! I hope this finds you all well and enjoying it much--
A quick mention that the Buckhorn Fine Art Festival (north of Peterborough) begins next week. There is a nicely done preview evening Thursday, August 13th, with a wonderful atmosphere (and great hors d'oeuvres), with full days on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. If you appreciate fine art, this is a 'don't miss'--80 or so of the country's best--further information on my website, in my Facebook Page Events, or on the link above. If you do slip up to the show, please drop by our booth and say hello--
There's a new oil just off the easel--'Lacrosse Sticks (traditional)'. (Further details on my website.)
