Common Loon

This pencil drawing brings back happy memories for me. After my husband retired we went to Canada to meet up with a family who had been very kind to him whilst he was training with the RAF. One of the daughters lived in Hamilton nr Toronto and they took us out in their day boat on Lake Ontario. We spent the night in a boat-motel on an island in the lake. Seeing this bird and hearing its plaintive cry is something I have never forgotten.


  1. So was this what started you painting?

  2. Not really that was 1981 I started painting in 1991.
