This is the 45th 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 45 was created in 2022, and it is the very first time in the Canoe Series that I have ever added a loon by attaching it to a foreground root. This gives the impression of it swimming peacefully by the front of the island. (I usually feature loons in my sculptures where the island is surrounded by water glass) It is also only the second canoe that I have created in a semi-transparent red glass, and the stone that I selected for this piece comes from beautiful Lake Temagami in Northern 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.
