Edith Cavell, Sketch

"Edith Cavell, Sketch", 10 x 10 In, Oil on Museum Board

At the end of our second painting day in Jasper, at the foot of Mt. Edith Cavell, I was tired! I had done one painting facing the mountain and one facing the other direction. But I wanted to do one more! This very fast sketch of Mount Edith Cavell was the result: one of those impetuous and "pray the devil-may-care painting gods will be with me!" And after 20 minutes or so, I just said, "put it in the box and for heaven's sake, don't look at it!" But when I do look at it now, this magnificent mountain and the story of Edith Cavell come back to me.
