John Hartman: Tar Island, 2009

Tar Island, 2009, oil on linen, 48 x 54 inches

Georgian Bay

The Bay is my home landscape. It defines my sense of space, light and scale.

I spend each summer on an island south of Britt in the archipelago of islands that forms the eastern shoreline of Georgian Bay. I work directly from nature making small landscape paintings of the flat, rocky shoreline, and changeable sky and water that make this area so intriguing to paint.
