Lawren Harris, Lake Simcoe
I didn't intend to base this mini-challenge on a painting. But when I was uploading the clothes photos to Blogger, every other photo I've taken or downloaded came up for viewing as well, and there was this beautiful but nameless and painter-less painting of birches I had saved awhile back.
You have to know something about 20th century Canadian painters to realize what a needle in a haystack "birches near water" is. I image-searched through Tom Thompson, A.J. Casson, and Emily Carr before I remembered that I had been looking for Lawren Harris paintings last year. Oh right.
So...blues and greens, quiet woods, and the splashing water of Lake Simcoe. Land of the silver birch, home of the beaver. Ten end-of summer pieces of clothing. Ten outfits. Ten days.
(I'm not sure what I'll be doing on some of those days, so I'll add notes later on.)
