The French River Delta — Self Portrait

You are looking west down the Pickerel River and the French River. They meet in Hartley Bay and the French runs south through two outlets. Yet another outlet runs west through the Voyager Channel, where the Bad River branches off and runs through various channels to Georgian Bay. The Voyager reaches the bay near Grondine Point. In the far distance you can see the highest hills of the La Cloche Range. Beside the self portrait I have included an image of myself sketching on the Fingerboard Islands and closer to the horizon I have painted my artist friend Doug Moore, sketching. This series which started over Port Severn now ends with the artist looking back south over the bay.
