Early September in the Meadow 12"x16" (below) has been hanging in the McMichael Canadian  Collection community gallery since January. It is part of a group exhibition by mostly professional artists who painted landscapes for a week in the Pine Cottage at the McMichael in September. 

The show is closing this weekend. It is always a thrill to be included in this exhibition! 

Now the exhibition will tour  making up to 6 stops in various galleries around the province. 

This meadow is at the bottom of a forested hill and bordered on the downhill side also by a forest. Berried sumacs fringe the forest beside the brightly blooming meadow. Showy goldenrod (not ordinary Canada goldenrod!) and purple coneflower grace the stage for the last perhaps most stunning performance of the season. Certainly the butterflies and bees think so!  ... Painted ladies, Monarchs, Viceroys, Great Spangled Fritillaries, Black Swallowtails, Red Admirals, White Admirals.........  :D
