Tania Kasperska Excellent always..!!

okay so while there is a healthy smattering of interest in the watercolour on paper i ought sneak in that there is a alternate study of the reflection with birches from divine lake that was managed with watercolour and acrylic on gessoed birch panel which has a totally different feel to it

Micheal Zarowsky thanks Tania, collaborative piece – beavers ate the trees into submission and Wendy bounced up n down on them to stir the waters and i painted it all leaving the beavers and Wendy out of it

Manon Beaute Gorgeous!!

Micheal Zarowsky thanks Manon, so glad you like it

Got back late last night from a few lost days up Georgian Bay to discover my painting (from tiny Divine Lake which is really but a beaver pond), has been awarded a prize, the Colors of Nature gift certificate, in the Open Water 2017 Show at the Aird Gallery, Toronto

Janet Bloomer Roberson Bravo 🙌

Micheal Zarowsky thanks Janet, glad the judges saw something in it they liked.

Janet Bloomer Roberson Micheal Zarowsky There is so much to love, Micheal!

Micheal Zarowsky Janet Bloomer Roberson so i ought not mention how Wendy was jumping up an down on the birch making water patterns in the still pond pissing the beavers right off.

Janet Bloomer Roberson Micheal Zarowsky Great memories you have 🙌

Micheal Zarowsky Janet Bloomer Roberson Elva Hook, during the cabbagetown show told me i ought gather them together in a booklet or book depending on my memory.

Janet Bloomer Roberson Micheal Zarowsky I agree!!

Heather Sisman Micheal Zarowsky Do this! I’m in awe of your art, but your writing is even more descriptive and spellbinding 😊

Micheal Zarowsky Heather Sisman sure okay given i only put in 16 hour days up to now what;s a few more hours – i can sleep forever once i’m dead

Heather Sisman How bout just keep doing what you’re doing then? 🙂

Micheal Zarowsky Heather Sisman like i can afford to do anything else… actually it might be fun to steal a few moments here n there towards it.

Heather Sisman Micheal you have such a way with words that maybe you should invest some time telling your story! I only know bits and pieces but would love to hear more! I always read the comments when you post because I love hearing how your work came to be.

Micheal Zarowsky you mean like having been commissioned to do a painting of poison ivy for a dermatologist so he could show his patients what they rolled in, i, who ought know better, have just applied a rash batch of it with a 2nd tube of lyderm…

Heather Sisman oh dear. I hope it clears up!

Micheal Zarowsky Heather Sisman of course silly….medicine has come a long way since…..

Jeanette Marshall Congratulations!

Micheal Zarowsky thanks Jeanette, appreciate your congrats and must say i was knee deep in a new beaver pond while this one was getting noticed.

Jeanette Marshall Such a great place to be — both places.

Micheal Zarowsky Jeanette Marshall thought i would have the north all to myself only to find no shortage of people wandering about

Jeanette Marshall Is it migration season?

Micheal Zarowsky there were swarms of gathered birds doing air-o-bics as if practicing for circ de soleil / other wise saw 3 great blues one egret a night heron had 4 turkey vultures circling directly overhead sizing me up for a meal several hawks tons of squawking bluejays oodles of chippys running across the roadways several deer and lots and lots of moored boats

Jeanette Marshall I meant for the human species, lol. : )

Micheal Zarowsky well there were bunches of them, ‘groups’ is the word here, but they did not get very high off the ground nomatter how hard they flapped their arms,

Jeanine Laskar

Micheal Zarowsky thanks Jeanine, i like the idea of a high horizon line; worked the idea thru on panel with watercolours n acrylics and it has totally different feel to it – birches across the pond 30`x 24` watercoour é acrylic painted directly on gessoed birch panel
