The Saskatchewan River flows swiftly - not far from Brandon, Manitoba.
Painted from 'out of John's head'. Perhaps from a movie or a book he'd seen or read years earlier. Look carefully: Can you detect the face on the leading man's chest?
Louise and John viewed the Aurora Borealis one August night in the Kananaskis area of Alberta - where the Rocky Mountains start to rise and where John's daughter was married.
This was the favourite dictum of John's Mother ! The distant, undulating hills act as a backdrop to the nursing mother and child. The simple bench and wooden fence seem to separate the two scenes. This painting (which Louise suggested be entitled "The First Supper") hangs on a wall adjacent to "The Last Supper", a painting by John's Dad completed in 1946.
