L'Islet (oil painting)


Artist's Comment: "It's the back road kind of experience that has always influenced my art. One of my favourites, in the province of Quebec, has always been that stretch of scenic highway that follows the south shore of the St. Lawrence between Levis and Riviere-du-Loup. At times I've even been lucky enough to pass through riverside villages like L'Islet when...

Oyster Bay Fantasy (oil painting)

The Mine Head (oil painting)


Artist's Comment: "I'm not sure what was mined in this town, but I suspect that it was probably asbestos. At the time I came upon this seemingly derelict structure some years ago, I didn't really care much about its function, just that it looked interesting and that it would probably make a good subject for a painting." Artist:  Michael Everett...

Frozen Sundown (oil painting)


Artist's Comment: "I don't make a habit of driving the Lake Superior route of the Trans-Canada highway in the middle of winter, but when I did so a few years ago, I certainly saw things in a different light. I suppose that old trucks tend to hibernate for the winter just as many animals do." Artist:  Michael Everett Glover A...

End Of The Line (oil painting)


Artist's Comment: "When you drive the most northerly road that you can possibly take from British Columbia to Alberta, you'll eventually enter the village of Hine's Creek.

Several freight cars and a...

At Rest, Blind River


Artist's Comment: "The section of highway 17 that follows the north channel of Lake Huron is a pleasant and restful drive, one of those roads that are dotted with many small and interesting villages. Blind River is one of the larger towns on the route, but it thankfully never seems to grow any larger or more urbanized with the passing...
