This outstanding creation by Franklin Carmichael is such a well balanced painting. The soft hazy sky and the background hills stand firmly in the distance and perfectly push the foreground hills and trees into the main focus. The birch logs on the lower right guide the eye gently toward the true focal point of the painting; the overall effect being a calming and relaxing feeling.

Description

Franklin Carmichael (1890-1945) was born in Orillia and later moved to Toronto to study art at Central Technical School, and then at The Ontario College of Art. He worked at the printing firm where J.E.H. MacDonald was his boss and other members of the group were also employed. He studied art at the Academie Des Beaux Arts in Antwerp, Belgium, but his education was ended by the onset of World War I. Upon his return to Toronto and his job at the printing firm, he was invited out on weekend sketching trips, and was thus included in the circles of artists who were to become The Group of Seven. Carmichael focused a lot of his work in the field of watercolour painting, which at the time was not a popular medium for painting. In 1932, he got a job as a teacher at the Ontario College of Art; this offered him the ability to create more painting works and influence the next generation of Canadian artists. In 1932, after the Group of Seven disbanded, he was became a founding member of The Canadian Society of Painters in Watercolour.
