    Love your words and work. I can feel the paddle strokes in your description. Yes, we love canoes. Sadly we must part with my Dad’s cedar canvas complete with sail and lee-boards. Great to see your art.

    Hello Chris and Rita
    So much mesmerized with the reflections. Our beautiful world!
    Have lived among her many loved animals in the Gaspe wilderness , moose and Brooks so packed with trout we had buckets lifting out the lunch my mom would prepare for us 1/ children.
    Ahh .
    Now in Pointe CLSIRE where traffic and blasts of coal fired US freight trains shake one’s sense of peace.
    With so much so fragile .. like we all are. We still however see the beauty of the occasional butterfly..
    We need more voices from artists on the way our beautiful world that you share is drifting like the dead heads in front our old Matapedia fishing camps,,HALEY SALMON POOL.
    the worlds finest salmon pool ( stolen from my grandparents by Morgan Trust. Now known as the US multi ‘Millionaires Club! ‘
    Loved the photos! Hello to Rita. Was great meeting u at the lake front here and later at Pointe Claire Camera Club!
    We must be resilient!
    I am still working on the very highly hazardous wood burning. No emissions reduced in these called clean burning stoves certified EpA ( Ruling EPA 2014)
    Des my Twitter: Wood Smoke Free
    Doctors and Scientists Against Wood Smoke Pollution.org
    26% of Canada’s Carbon. So much we must stop if our children are to get a glimpse of what we have had the blessings to see and experience with our beautiful world friends and nature!

    Only memories .. for them ??
    well Chris, sending regards..
    Keep well and enjoy!
