Keelor - Lost Paddle Art

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!
