I visited Thunder Bay as a child and the Sleeping Giant impressed me very much. I had not intended on painting this scene but somehow, the Giant appeared. It was meant to be! Of course, while painting this scene, I was humming a tune from an iconic Canadian singer and songwriter.

Gordon Lightfoot’s song, The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald was a brain worm while I painted this series.

How often do sailors on Lake Superior look to the skies and wonder what wicked weather is in store for them as they try to sail their tankers to safety?

Lake Huron rolls, Superior sings

In the rooms of her ice-water mansion

Old Michigan steams like a young man’s dreams…

And the iron boats go as the mariners all know

With the gales of November remembered
