Wind swept trees clutch the rocks on the edge of the shore for dear life

This painting was done from a study that I did while on a canoe trip three days of portaging deep into Algonquin Provincial Park. My friend Bruce Rajotte and myself had paddled and portaged here and made camp for a few days of relaxation.

I wanted to portray the stubborness of the trees survival on a at times wind swept coastline of a large Algonquin lake. The roots clutching like fingers grappling the rocks of shore to hold on. Precariously perched and leaning over the shores edge, their trunks were twisted as they grew. These are the survivors
