The Dream Canoe

By Alan Syliboy

Sometime in the mid-80’s, I was visiting the Afton reserve, where I had developed many lasting friendships.  I came upon the Prosper kids playing in a canoe on a summer’s day.  This instantly took me back to many summer days of my childhood where I did the exact same thing.  But now, I was an observer.  I was lucky to have my camera with me and that I went unnoticed (which would have broken the spell).  This is the closest I’ll ever come to re-living a moment of my childhood.  This painting will forever take us back to a warm summer’s day on a voyage with your best friends.
