Having an admiration for rocks, trees, choppy waves rolling across a lake or anything in nature with a rugged textured surface, this was a good challenge for me.   Not only was this painting about a love of rocks, but somewhere I would like to spend some time.  Several people have commented that “this looks like a water mill at …  I’d like to find that place and paint plein air.   Enjoy!

About Lisa's Palette

"My paintings are often admired for their realistic qualities through the use of light, shadow and colour. Capturing the beauty within the rustic landscapes of my entitled series, 'Farms of Simcoe County,' has become my passion. Keeping my camera close at hand allows me to capture the images as I come across them, while I use my artistic gifts to seek out particular points of interests in these images. Painting on location brings a connection to the subject, through not only sight, but sound and smell as well. My goal is to produce paintings that give the viewer a sense of calmness and relaxation.”

    I know exactly where that “mill” is, it’s in St. George N.B. I now it very well as I grew up climbing the cliffs of the gorge around it and the waterfalls just behind it
