Thirty Paintings in 30 Days - Day Five

Oil - 6 X 6

 This painting was done from a reference photo taken at a Great Lakes Voyageurs re-enactment back in Michigan a few years ago.

  The Voyageurs were fur traders (thus the Native American  gentleman), missionaries and explorers that came to the area from French settlements in Canada in the 1600's.  Going to these re-enactments, particularly the campfire / lantern events after dark, is one of my favorite things to do.
