Historical Trekking

Voyageur - NFS
Watercolor - Half Sheet 

This watercolor was based on my fascination with a re-enactor at an encampment of French-Canadian fur traders / woodsmen back in Michigan a few years ago. 

I actually got a likeness of this man which is a rare occurrence, trust me.   We went back to the festival the following year to gift him with the painting, but couldn't locate him.
 So the painting stays with me, a memory of a warm, wonderful day on Lake St. Clair.


  1. Good stuff Chris. Batiks are super. Not surprised you've sold most of them.

  2. Thanks, Roger. Really nice of you to comment.
