LOONDANCE, 23” x 33”, 1990
‘Loondance ‘ was selected by the World Wildlife as a fundraising print in 1990 to raise funds to help protect these birds and their habitat. The painting is a night image showing how the moonlight dances across the loons and the surface of the water. The loon is the symbol of lake country in Canada and is a favorite of photographers and painters alike. To capture the essence of the loon and it's call, I wrote this poem and included it as hand written caligraphy on a stone lithograph I did that accompanied this piece.
“The loon and its music embodies the spirit of the northern lakes and wilderness,
its freedom, solitude and mysteries.
Once heard, the haunting, far-carrying call-notes can never be forgotten.
Truly the wildest of sounds ever heard.”
Lawrence A. Dyer
