I created this painting during the Elora Plein Air festival down where the Grand River passes the Pilkington Overlook. I have painted this area many times because I love the wide openness of the waterway and energy that pervades the natural environment. There is a calmness that surrounds you while you listen to the trickling of the water, the call of the various birds, and the buzzing of the insects. The sun warms you, while the winds that sweep through the valley brings you energy, almost as if nature was talking directly to you.
