#0158 "Bass Lake, Restoule"

This was looking west on a misty morning in July 1987 from our campsite on the "small" island in the eastern sections of Bass Lake of Restoule Provincial Park in July 1987. The pair of loons were approaching to make a "swim-past". They were unsuccessful at nesting and did not have any chicks with them. Floating nesting platforms are really required to counter the changing lake levels in the spring when loons and other shoreline nesters are trying to incubate their eggs.

The island was excellent for fishing but you had to fish on the leeward side with worms (live-bait).Our modern technology didn't seem to work.

I would have painted this in the Studio Under the Stairs in our home on Western Avenue in Schomberg, Ontario. Scene location N46.122324 W79.791819.
 For this and much more art...
