|Hopewell, New Brunswick, 24×12 © 2009 Michelle Basic Hendry|
From a painting near the USA Canadian border in Washington on the west coast to the another place near the USA / Canadian border - but this time on the East coast in New Brunswick, Canada.
This is the Bay of Fundy in January at the Hopewell Rocks.
This is one of Michelle Basic Hendry's favourite places in Canada any time of year. She wrote
In a place that bustles in the summer, the silence and emptiness of the Bay of Fundy on the east coast of Canada in January gives the feeling of being the first to discover it. We were visiting on the New Brunswick side and the sun was setting behind the red cliffs tipping the trees with gold and lighting up the beach. This was my first trip to the east coast and between the landscapes and the gracious people, it is one of my favourite places in the world.Michelle has Michelle has lived most of her life in Ontario, but has just been on a major road trip and is currently embarking on a new adventure in Oklahoma. I guess this is when we remember one of the other major pluses of landscape painting - the memories.
The Bay of Fundy was nominated for the New Seven Wonders of the World.
Michelle has been elected by her peers to become a member of the Society of Canadian Artists and the Landscape Artists International. I think might just be getting near to painting again after her big move. You can read her blog here http://artscapes.ca/blog-home/
