"On a second trip to Boothbay...the wooded north reminded me of childhood days in Georgian Bay, except that a grander topography was there. It was only recently, after reading Thoreau, that I realized how this experience had opened my eyes to the interest to be found in trees, rocks, topography and wide and brooding skies. Much of this intensity of reaction may have been due to the fact that I was seeing the scenes known to Mother's ancestors before migrating to Ohio. We were to see more of this kind of country in more northern Gaspé at a later date. On such excursions, one becomes aware of the need of a special palette - the extra blues and the contrasting keys of sky and earth."
