Thomas John Thomson was a Canadian artist active in the early 20th century. During his short career he produced roughly 400 oil sketches on small wood panels along with around 50 larger works on canvas. His works consist almost entirely of landscapes depicting trees, skies, lakes, and rivers. Because we will paint on a 9 x 12 canvas I have edited the size of the original painting. Painting of Canoe Optional also....
