Anne Savage’s family owned land at Lake Wonish in the Laurentians in Quebec, and nearly every year on her Summer and Easter breaks from teaching, she would spend time in a small studio she built on their property. The flowing composition is characteristic of Savage, who captures the windy fall day with rhythm. The lake was a place of great inspiration for the artist, and she painted in nature here for nearly fifty years, capturing the changes of the season with sensitivity.
