Inspired by the Group of Seven
About a year ago I read a batch of articles on The Group of Seven. The Group of Seven were a group of Canadian landscape painters in the 1920s; (Franklin Carmichael, Lawren Harris, A. Y. Jackson, Frank Johnston, Arthur Lismer, J. E. H. MacDonald, and Frederick Varley). Tom Thomson (who died in 1917) and Emily Carr were also associated with the Group of Seven, though neither were ever official members.The Group of Seven really appeals to me for the graphic look. I do like to go off on a graphic tangent now and then. This wound up looking like Minnesota to me.... (even though I used an Oregon photo for reference).
