Moose Harbour Fishing Huts, Foggy Day (sold) 11"x17"
In July 2014, our painting group was offered accommodation for 10 days in the village of Moose Harbour, very close to Liverpool, along the south shore of Nova Scotia.
On our arrival we experienced ‘socked in’ fog for about 24 hours with the haunting sound of the fog horn blowing intermittently. The fog was an interesting subject to paint; seeing the shapes emerge and disappear from time to time, the fog served to simplify the scene in a beautiful way.
We found lots of inspiration in the surrounding areas, including sites at Meadway Head, White Point Beach and Hunt's Landing. At one of our painting sites in Kejimkujik National Park we watched the comings and goings of seals from a large rock just a little way out from shore.
