Artist Laurie J Cochrane

Resilience, strength are a few words that come to mind when I observe these river pines.

Summer kayaking is an activity I enjoy. New perspectives for new paintings and seeing the shoreline up close.  This quiet and gentle mode of travel on the bay is a must try experience.

This is an incredible show of native wild irises on the shores of the French River. Monet, Van Gogh, and Cochrane are all artists that use this flower as subject matter for a painting.

A true sense of accomplishment when you can hike the Crack at Killarney Provincial Park and reach the top to stand near the lone pine. I look forward to framing the small oil painting I did of this famous pine. 

Collaging maps of the loca area into the painting adds curiosity for  the viewer.  A sense of place documenting the historical French River, Ontario.  This river was the waterway connecting Lake Nipissing to the French then flowing into Georgian Bay ( Lake Huron). 

Mapping Pines along the shores of the French River is my new summer series. Framed  painting  8 x 10

Also a canvas print is available   Ready to hang

The weather keeps changing and it is time to capture a quick winter painting

I am going out to see the shadows on the snow.  Plein air painting.

A contemporary acrylic painting with speckles of gold inlay is a decorative Iris beauty. Soon to go to print.

Limit editions only.  First print is amazing on a canvas-wrapped frame. 20 x 24  x depth 1.5 inches
