This is the 44th sculpture in my Canoe Series. You will notice the edition number and my signature engraved on the back of the glass canoe. My Canoe Series started with a small edition of six in 2016, and there are now a total of forty-five in the growing edition. Number 44 was created in 2022, and it is the very first time in the Canoe Series that I have ever added a heron by attaching it to a foreground root. This gives the impression of it fishing quietly in front of the island. (I usually feature herons in my sculptures where the island is surrounded by water glass) The stone that I selected for this piece comes from the beautiful Muskoka region in central Ontario. I hope that it reminds you of paddling on your favourite lake or river whenever you view it. The piece, with its red canoe, really “comes to life” when placed by a window, but you probably already have a location in mind for it.
