Walking through Memories.
Walking through memories
As life goes by, and it does very quickly the older I get, the quicker things of childhood we forget.
When I was a child my mother used to take my older sister and I to Woodbridge to swim in the very shallow Humber River. There were many low hanging Weeping willows along the banks of the river and I used to think I was Tarzan swinging from those long branches. I used to also bring my under water goggles to go deep sea diving in that river, which was actually only a few inches deep. I thought I was Jacques Cousteau diving from his ship, The Calypso!
It’s been 50 years since those major childhood expeditions happened in my mind, and for the most part all forgotten.
Today I left Orillia on some business with a gallery there, and headed home the long way. Hwy 11 south and somehow I ended up in Woodbridge. Heading south on Islington I first went for a short nostalgic walk through Boydd Conservation area which rendered memories all by itself. But then thoughts of the Humber River just one mile south of Boydd brought me to a deep stroll down memory lane through deep sea dives and swinging through the trees.
Gone so long ago, but so fresh in my mind and my heart.
A pleasure to bring you along on this hike through my life line of time.
The Artists Journey
This is my blog page and it is where I get to be the opinionated man that I really am. The views are my own.

This sketch above became this finished painting below
The Pine Tree Painter.
How did I become known as the Pine Tree Painter? You could say I paint a lot of Pine Trees, that would be true. I paint a lot of other things too, but Pine Trees, Spruce Trees, Birch and others seem to be a continuous string in what i do. I just like the way they stand there like a custodian of the land. or a greeter to nature. So, I continue down the path with the Pine Tree Painter name on my head, It's ok.
