Fields In July Near Batoche watercolor on paper 40 x 60 in.
This watercolour is of a view from a height of land facing west. Looking through the foreground flowers and grass one sees the canola fields also known as prairie gold. In the distance is the riverbank of the South Saskatchewan. This area is near the national historic sight of Batoche where one of the famous battles of the Louis Riel Rebellion took place. In July this area of Saskatchewan is at its most beautiful with many vibrant colours of flax, canola, and wheat fields growing under the clear sunny skies.

During one evening I was alone painting at the edge of the water, listening to the wolves howling and watching the intense vibrant colours of dusk transform the appearance of the forest, sky, and water
