Algoma District – Worton Township

Algoma District - Worton Township

Medium: Etching, aquatint Dimensions: 24 x 30 inches The Canadian Shield, rich in natural resources, covers much of Ontario. Its resources have been valued especially by the mining and forestry industries. Although the trees have largely returned, scars remain. So far, the only scars on the rocks are those etched by time and weather. However, unlike old growth forests rocks cannot grow back. Hopefully, we will appreciate, respect, and protect this fragile landscape.

Balsam Lake – Delamere Island

Balsam Lake – Delamere Island

Medium: Etching, aquatint, chine colle Dimensions: 22 x 30 inches This etching is of the northern tip of Delamere Island known locally as “Peace’s Point”. It is especially beautiful and peaceful in the early morning when the sun is rising and in the early evening when the sun is setting. However, not everyone shares my love of this spot. There is a hidden rocky shoal in the foreground where many boaters have left their propellers - just this side of Delamere Island.
