In the mid 1990s, Paul and Avery moved to their lakeside home on Clearwater Lake, a most beautiful setting and one which I have had the pleasure of visiting and working around on numerous occasions. Avery was also very helpful in setting out a direction for this Blog - what an awful name by the way. That's why I call this "In Focus"!

    I am proud to present a small portfolio of four art works by Avery.

    My latest book called "Muskoka" was released this past spring. It's a portfolio of images taken in "Ontario's cottage country" over the last few years. Located north and northeast of Toronto, Muskoka encompasses the scenic areas of Lake Rosseau,
