Artist Statement:

The result of a group exploration / study by Connections, a fibre arts group, of the painting by J.E.H. MacDonald , a member of the Group of Seven, this panel was a personal challenge.  It required considerable experimentation of a variety of techniques and materials I typically apply to my textile and mixed media work, in order to create a work which satisfied my own creative approach, while remaining true to the original painting.
