“Virgin Androscoggin”

by David A. Footer Image size 20 X 48 inches the original oil painting on masonite done in 1971 framed with antique pine, frame made by artist.

In 1962, during Dave’s first trip into the wilderness of Canada, he was awed by the sight of the great rivers and beautiful sunsets of the Hudson Bay Region. Dave credits the solitude of the area plus its exceptional beauty for producing a wonderful spiritual experience. Over the next forty years, Dave traveled back to that country, on annual pilgrimages, and never ceased to be inspired. It was in those early years that the seeds of inspiration for his painting Virgin Androscoggin were planted. He tried to look back in time and envision what those first men and women explorers saw when traveling this great river.

David captures in oils, the rocky ledges that protrude from the river which are the base of the Great Falls located between present day ‘Twin Cities’ of Lewiston and Auburn, Maine. David’s passion for colorful sunsets is laid out in yellows, soft oranges in the atmosphere and on the water’s surface with a deep rose color in the sky over the darken forest of evergreen on the Western shore. Fading whisps of sunlight grace the ancient moss covered rocks and tree lined Northern shore. Unfurling her lovely locks, Virgin Androscoggin’s waters fall in rippling magnificence and hold those who look upon her spellbound.
