Hayward Lake Trail No. 1
Acrylic Paint with Black Ink on watercolour paper. Measures 5.75w x 8.5h inches
Hayward Lake offers a scenic hike along the hiking trails near Mission, BC maintained by BC Hydro. The lake has two trails; the Hayward Railway Trail on the west side and the Hayward Reservoir Trail on the east side. Hayward Lake is a lake and reservoir on the Stave River in the Lower Mainland of British Columbia, Canada. Located in the District of Mission about 60 km east of Vancouver, Hayward Lake is formed by Ruskin Dam, which lies about 3 km upstream from the Stave River’s confluence with the Fraser River at Ruskin, which sits astride the Mission-Maple Ridge boundary. The lake begins at the tailrace from the Stave Falls Dam and is about 7.5 km in length and an average of 0.5 km wide, with a maximum width of 1.5 km when lengths of small inlets are taken into account.
The subject of my paintings is local natural history. I grew up with a large forest across the street from where I lived and I went on many camping trips to various provincial and federal parks in both BC and Alberta. After graduating from High School I worked for 5 summers in various regions across British Columbia while attending college.
I love to explore nature, often visiting parks and lakes within 2-hours of where I live, turning my discoveries into paintings. My hope is, that through my art, people will reconnect with the beauty that is within a short drive of where they reside in the Vancouver lower mainland.
