Riding across snow-covered fields in a horse-drawn is a special part of Christmas in the north country.  The jingle of bells on the horse’s harness adds to the holiday cheer.  The end of the day arrives quickly at this time of year, and an early return home is made.  The warm light in the windows is a welcome sight to the well-wrapped couple.

Upon This Rock

Upon This Rock18×24     oil on canvas     $2300

This beautiful wooden church stands on a high rock overlooking the Saint Lawrence River at Rockport, Ontario, in the heart of the Thousand Islands.  The village of Rockport, was first settled in 1797, chiefly by Scottish & Irish immigrants of Catholic & Presbyterian faiths. Where Rockport is now situated, there was a natural harbour marked by a huge, lichen-covered rock outcropping. In 1891,St. Brendan’s Catholic Church was erected on the top of this rock, overlooking the St. Lawrence River.  Upon this site, in 1919, Mrs. L. Cornwall commissioned a monument, the “Queen of Peace” and dedicated it to her late husband, Charles Cornwall, who owned the property. St. Brendan’s Catholic Church & the “Queen of Peace” remain a much loved local landmark within the 1000 Islands of the St. Lawrence River.

A game of “Shinny” on a frozen farm pond provides hours of winter fun for a group of country kids, just having a good time.  The lack of skates and meager equipment do nothing to dull the enthusiasm for the game.  A faithful farm dog looks on, enjoying the excitement.
