Art Fx # 47: “After the Rain” by Tina McAuley

Art Fx is a yearlong series on Huntsville Doppler featuring visual artists from the Huntsville area.

“After the Rain” by Tina McAuley is an 8 “x10” oil painting.

“We were at our cabin in Rock Lake in September and it rained for three consecutive days,” Tina recalls. “We found out after that there had been record rain. Once the rain finally stopped we set off by canoe and the lake was illuminated with a beautiful pink and blue light. I took a few pictures and painted this when I got home.

About the artist:

Tina McAuley is a photographer and artist living in Huntsville, Ontario, not far from Algonquin Park.

A lifelong lover of nature, she is often found camping, hiking, canoeing, snowshoeing or walking in the woods.

Inspired by the beauty of nature, her pieces reflect the serenity and joy she experiences outdoors. The photographs all capture a moment on a journey: a loon that appeared beside the canoe, the vibrant light of the sunset as a canoe paddled across the lake, the softness of a pine marten in the snow. Many paintings are painted during an adventure or created in the workshop from photographs and memories.

Tina’s favorite compliment is when someone tells her that one of her images makes them feel like they’re out in nature, or that they’re inspired to go out.

Achievements include three eight-month exhibitions at the Algonquin Park Visitor Center, prizes for the Canadian Geographic Wildlife of the Year Photo Contest and the Canadian Wildlife Federation’s Annual Photo Contest, as well as the publication of photos in Algonquin Park publications and national magazines.
