From an expired Ebay auction is an intense watercolour by Canadian Artist, Arthur Keelor. I haven't been able to find any info about Keelor's life other than the fact that he painted many War Bonds and Propaganda posters during World War I. In this work, the canoeist has lost his only paddle in some crazy current. Check out the look of fear and panic on his face.
Watercolor - No Title Signed in pencil – A. Keelor
This is why I always take 2 paddles with me into the boat!
I'm an avid canoeist and general "outdoorsy type" guy with a bit of an artistic side. Recently started this hobby of making custom canoe paddles after my disappointing experience with most commercial brands. This site documents various styles of single blade canoe paddles I've made or researched as well as other canoe related info I've stumbled across on my internet wanderings. Hope you enjoy your visit.
