Killarney Provincial Park, Ontario
"Fresh snow. Nothing quite defines winter like twelve inches of the fluffy white stuff. This location, found while snowshoeing through it, highlighted that for me. We had planned our winter trip for March in the hopes of longer days and more enjoyable weather. It was actually milder than I had expected this day, and the benefit was that the Chikinashing Creek in Killarney Provincial Park was wide open and flowing. I even had the chance to canoe down the river for a ways. The clarity of the water and the blanket of pristine snow made for a memorable experience.
I set up my easel alongside these waters as the late afternoon sun filtered onto the scene. At times, the quiet stillness in the forest amplified, by contrast, the soothing sounds coming from the stream. Adding to this winter symphony were tinkling notes created by water rushing past the ice along the banks. To this musical accompaniment, I painted." - Cory
