Summer Art Prints: “Vista from Chi-Cheemaun Ferry”
We miss this excursion across Lake Huron, this year– casualty of the pandemic. If you drive 5 hours northwest of Toronto, you come to the largest fresh water estuary in the world…as it is billed. A magnificent piece of planet earth. If you get on the ferry on a summer evening and head out across the Great Lake, you may stumble on a very unusual moment like this, a magical place.
The ferry, Chi-Cheemaun, (means, “Big Canoe,” in Objibwe) departs Tobermory and sails at a good clip for about 75 minutes out Lake Huron before arriving at Manitoulin Island, a very out-of-the-way place that is simple, clean, impeccably clean, lightly populated and beautiful in its spartan make-up. We arrive in South Baymouth, and proceed… This print to some modest extent gets at the exquisite beauty of this memorable air/water/sky environment. You can find other such photo scenes at George Delany Art.
Honey-bees are also on my mind, these days. Mites are around. Tiny, but lethal killers of bee-hives. Now, we have the pandemic with it’s Wuhan Virus, and mites that carry viruses…a daily work-out, in my view. Fellow beekeepers remind me in no uncertain terms of the need to test, treat, plan for seasonal wind-down and arrival of cool weather– winter bees are being conceived in the hive, now. I have begun to feed bees in this long, hot dry period…remains of my extraction sessions, honey-drenched comb they seem eager to claim to recycle in their hives, just a start. As the honey-bees plan for the tough seasons ahead, I invite you here in latter-August, amidst the pandemic, economic travail, national politics, geopolitical tensions and national forbearance to reflect, to buy an art print… (have you ever purchased an art print?), to investigate GeorgeDelanyArt… try two neat features on my site you may enjoy:
The first– WALL Preview, a capability that visualizes your art selection in your specifications as seen in different settings; living room, bedroom, sitting room, conference room, these sorts of things, as referenced, above.
Secondly, the Live Augmented Reality feature that allows you to see your chosen art work on YOUR wall…in your setting. Pretty exciting stuff.
This is my “business advice,” for the week– To be frank, offering business advice is a bore, but here goes: You want to discover a place in your business that is exquisite, don’t you? Is it in the receivables? Is it in the vision, the mission? Where is the exquisite…in your business experience. Is it in the satisfaction of a tough job, well done? In my case, completing a graphic design job carried its own rewards, and on occasion, I would have a moment not unlike that captured in this print– where what I am looking right at is indescribably beautiful…and often times, I have to realize that this comes with effort. You make the journey, you make the voyage, you pick up your stuff and head out. You do the work. And if you’re lucky, you stumble upon a something unusual.
