In this peaceful landscape Pat Service has painted a classic summer lake-side scene—floating dock in the water, overturned boat on the shore and a Canadian flag waving in the breeze.
These are the colours of summer—sky blue waters, pale yellow sky, soft greens for the hills, a pop of bright yellow for the dock, a wash of gray for the boat.
“Living close to nature for the first 12 years of my life indelibly imprinted on me an identity with trees, fields, creeks, lakes, dirt, rocks, the sun, the sky, gardens, plants, flowers, roads, and so on. Every time I start a new painting I am attempting to honour and seal that connection. “Pat Service
