Diptych, both images together 8.5 x 12, watercolour
I painted these stoves using the plein air method, putting up my easel and painting what I saw. I had insomnia and just felt like painting in the middle of the night. Wilberforce is a village in Highlands East, pop. 3000, an old iron mining village about 3 hours north east of Toronto. The topography resembles the Scottish highlands although I bet we have more mosquitoes.
Hilda Clark, the proprietor of the B and B, is also on the Board of Trustees of the Hospital Museum and I am pretty sure this is the only existing painting of the two stoves. The green thing is a butter creamer.
