COME FISH WITH ME

Heading off in the world’s biggest snowmobile to see ice fishing huts on Lake Scugog.

Well, not quite. I’d be hopeless at catching anything myself (not enough patience.) Even so, I have become inspired by the habits of fishermen since quitting my country life for a new home in the Scottish town of Fergus, Ontario two years ago.

And especially now. In these Covid-obsessed times, fishermen are surely champs at social distancing. Staying apart comes naturally to them. They stake out a space on the river or lake, and they don’t want anyone else butting in!

I’ve painted their ice fishing huts on Belwood Lake, Lake Scugog and in Chateauguay, Quebec. And I love the fly fishermen I can sketch from my garden on the Grand River.

Come and see the results in a mini-art show, held on two weekends at my office/studio in Fergus.

There’s also an advance exhibit in the storefront windows of Wolfe, Smith and Forster lawyers, at 140 St. Andrew St. W., Fergus from Nov. 2 thru 29, 2020.

All paintings are for sale. Prices range from $50 to $700. Cash, cheques or E-transfer only. No credit cards.

But there’s no obligation to buy. Just drop by and say Hi.

What: Mini-art show featuring fishermen
