Landscape as Muse

Season One - Episode 2

Boreal Forest with Bob Boyer
Canada's northern boreal forest is incredibly diverse; in it we find alder, aspen, birch, fir, larch, pine, spruce, and willow, as well as numerous shrub and bush varieties. In recent years, preservation of these "lungs of the earth" has become a significant part of global conservation strategies. Working in oils, with a tree for an easel, Bob Boyer creates a Group of Seven-Like "Plein-Air" painting in the forest over three cool spring days.
