It was the dark red crabapples (pomes) that caught my attention one sunny late fall day while walking at the The Riverwood Conservancy in Mississauga.  And it was not until this past summer that I was able to identify the type of crabapple tree … a Prairifire Flowering Crabapple (Malus ‘Prairifire’).  The tree is a disease-resistant cultivar developed by Dr. Daniel Dayton, University of Illinois in 1982.  He misspelled the name intentionally.  Do you know that crabapple trees are members of the rose family, Rosaceae?  People are attracted to the Prairifire crabapple by its deep pink-red flowers, its ever-changing leaf colour … maroon to dark green/purplish-red veins to bronze … and its reddish-grey bark.  I was hoping to obtain another small specimen for my painting, but sadly on my visit the tree appeared stressed with few leaves and fruit.   Enjoy!

The Riverwood Conservancy – An evening with Robert Bateman

On Friday November 6, 2015 I enjoyed an evening at the Waterside Inn & Conference Centre, Mississauga listening to Robert Bateman speak about his life as an artist, teacher, traveler and naturalist. His new book titled Life Sketches is a memoir about his childhood, his formation as an artist, his teaching, his travels throughout Canada and around the world, and his lifelong fascination with nature and wildlife.  Robert Bateman is now a Founding Patron of the Riverwood Conservancy.

You can also listen to an interview with Robert Bateman by Mark Wigmore on Jazz FM 91.1.

In regards to art, Robert Bateman said you can take art classes but if you want to do art then just [get out there] and can you buy Lyrica at walmart Do Art.  Last September 2014, I had the opportunity to visit The Robert Bateman Centre in Victoria, BC.  If you’re in Victoria, BC make sure you visit the Centre!
