A rocky buttress juts forth leading the viewer into the abyss of watery loneliness. A central element in the figure/ground relationship, the seemingly abstract micro-levee is speckled with crops of hatched-in vegetation and water grasses. This angled outcropping of light colored earth tones abruptly ends at a buoyant but eerily still flatboat canoe. The solo manmade component is reflecting an impressionistic rendition of itself in the cerulean tones below, a watery and mirrored doppelganger void of the same personification as seen in the desolate dinghy. Heavily accentuated and contrasting shadows made by the setting sun add a much needed breath of richness to the lifeless vessel; an important element that acts as a connection point from the pier to the various strata of tree-lined reflections and bands of monotone viridian horizon lines.
Placed in the upper eight of the overall picture, these strong parallel delineations rise from the lower right, upside-down reflections to the yellow ochre autumn foliage which gleams in its seasonal beauty to darkened emulations of coniferous canopy. The escalating rhythm is broken by a dominantly impasto-esque shoreline of knee high grasses, a horizontal base for the majestic treetops of the Canadian wilderness; back-dropped by the lilac brume of mountainous ambiguity. A bleached-out sky overcast with heavy atmospheric wintery gloom pushes down on this fleeting light with threats of snow and artic temperament.
