Fall Maple


5"X7" Acrylic on board

For various reasons we didn't end up going up north, so I painted storm-windows instead. I used a photo from a previous visit to paint this image.

When those of us who live in Niagara, or Toronto talk about going "up north", we really mean northern Southern Ontario. Northern Ontario is something else again.

Achray campground is actually only around lat 46, south of all of North Dakota, Seattle and much of Maine; the South Coast of England starts at around lat 50. It is pretty remote though and the weather is quite different. Fall will already be considerably more advanced there and the temperatures are already below freezing at night.
