I was reminiscing about a trip many years ago to Halifax, Nova Scotia. We drove the Lighthouse Trail and it was simply gorgeous. Given I won’t be in a position to visit Eastern Canada any time in the forseesable future, I wanted to capture my memories and feelings of Atlantic Canada using Chinese inks. I’ve incorporated the famous Blue Nose schooner that is on our Canadian dime, as well as a lighthouse. It’s such a beautiful place.
This painting was exhibited during my trip to China August-September 2018.
