|Anne McCormick, "Spring Breakup, North Saskatchewan", oil on panel, 24" x 36"|
McCormick says of this work: Throughout the year I often go and paint at Red Coat Landing in Fort Saskatchewan which is located at the boat launch on the North Saskatchewan River. This is on the west side of town. It is a beautiful spot that continues to inspire me. This painting is based on a study I painted in March 2013. I stood on the riverbank looking east . It was a wonderful painting experience with just a bit of mist hovering over the water, the sounds of ice cracking and the arrival of the first water fowl of the year.
