The Canadian Shield is so vast and stunning in its beauty and has played a significant role in the history of Canadian art. It was place of initial inspiration for Tom Thomson and the Group of Seven. My wife and I spent much time in the shield and last Fall I choose to go back on a nostalgic journey through some of the places that I had travelled with her. The islands and the sunsets are so typical of that area. One can imagine the call of the loon in the evening calm.
