Just spent a great weekend enjoying the weather, the spring blossoms and a local museum exhibit about Tom Thomson, a Canadian artist who died in 1917.
This artist was one of several who began to paint Canada’s landscape and scenery in new ways.
The exhibit showed some smaller works by Thomson along with many works by people who had been inspired by his work.
The exhibit was interesting to see, just wish it had included some of his major works.
The legend of Tom Thomson lives in but I think that, with this exhibit, we found a bit of the man, himself!
