Lake Superior, Ontario, Canada.
Acrylic with silver foil on 4×4 gallery wrapped canvas. Varnished to a gloss to enhance the colours. Sides are painted. Does not require framing. Suitable to hang on the wall or displayed on the mantle or on a desk with other mementoes of the sea or the lake.
When I painted this scene, I was reminded of Gordon Lightfoot’s song, The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald.
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?
Twas the witch of November come stealin’
The dawn came late and the breakfast had to wait
When the gales of November come stealin’
When afternoon came it was freezin’ rain
In the face of the hurricane west wind.
