This painting is based off an old found image of Pushthrough, a town on Newfoundland's south coast which has been an inspiration for many paintings by the artist. The grid is used as a tool to transfer the image onto the canvas and is emphasized for visual interest which is becoming a signature style in Margaret Louise's work.
This painting is made from a reference photo of a flood in the rural Maritimes. The painting's marks are very deliberate and planned resulting in a crisp image. Within the grid shown, one section was painted at a time at random and separate colours were mixed for the same purpose but by using the right tone it functions correctly and results in greater visual interest.
