Acrylic on canvas, 20″ x 30″
“Breakfast” was taken from an early morning shot at a friend’s cottage (near Britt, Ontario). I added in the bobber for a centre of interest, and, of course, for the funny title. This painting continues the theme of back-lit compositions, and has an almost surreal aspect to it – the float appears too large for its environment.
The fog effect could have been better, but I think it still captures that special stillness before the world awakes, and power boats start speeding up and down the river…plus, there’s the excitement of knowing something’s nibbling on your hook!
