Dumoine Interface, Rocks and Water (print on canvas, 36 x 24 in.)
The Dumoine is The last undammed wild river in southern Quebec, and its drainage basin is the largest area of unfragmented southern boreal forest in Quebec. Aleta was here for a week in August as one of the artists in the Canadian Parks & Wilderness Society's 2017 Dumoine River Art & Wilderness camp.
At Red Pine Rapids, below Robinson Lake, Aleta was fascinated by the contrast between the moving patterns on bright water and the solid patterns of rocky shore.
