As I was finishing up the details yesterday on my collection of forgotten stories about the Grand Cascapedia River, I found this painting called, On Wooden House.
It was painted by a young woman called Louise. And I can only imagine what her thoughts were as she painted this watercolour scene while looking out over the river on a summer’s day back in the early 1880s.
For she was Queen Victoria’s daughter and how she found herself sitting on this veranda up in the woods on the Cascapedia River, so far away from home, is one of the stories that I wrote about in this collection of stories from my hometown.
According to some of the research that I did on her, it was said that this was the best painting she did while in Canada.
Maybe it was because there is more to this painting than meets the eye.
