Canadian Honkers, 1912 Sugar Shack, and Maple Trees in Spring
Painted: 1982 Published: 1982
On this bright spring day the Canada geese are headed north, but have dipped low for a close inspection of a circa 1900 “sugar shack”. The idea for this painting was inspired by mapler friends who, along with the artist, walked the shoveled paths and once again appreciated the rustic setting. Note the building’s functional design, suggesting an unknown architect’s anticipation of today’s solar homes.
