Thanks, Leanne.

It's a 208 piece puzzle on page 3 of this site. It doesn't look like the above painting at all. I contemplated doing the puzzle but changed my mind after I read a bit about him. I know him as Frank Johnston.

Ahhhh. Mystery solved. Now I have to go looking for Mr. Johnston. I don't know him, at least I don't think I do. :-)

Thanks for catching my error, Pat. I was confusing this with a Franz Johnston work also posted on the magicofhands site.

I'm not sure what you mean when you say Burchfield "distanced" himself from the Group of Seven, Leanne. I'm pretty familiar with his work and biography since he spent most of his life in Buffalo (my former home turf :-) ) where the Burchfield Penney Museum opened not too many years ago. I believe the Group of Seven, and those affiliated with the core members, were all Canadians. Burchfield was born in Ohio. This is the first I've heard of any connection between that group and him. So I'd really like to know more about that. All that aside, I've tried to enjoy his work through many trip to The Burchfield without a lot of success. He was pretty much an urban "landscape" painter and, I find, a depressing one at that. Not surprising considering his subject matter. This particular piece, however, I do like.

I find his work a bit too hallucinatory for me. Plus, he distanced himself from the Group of Seven after their first exhibit. Thanks anyways.
