I paddled with a voyageur canoe team in a marathon race from Whitehorse to Dawson City (700km) in the summers of 2001,2002 &2003. In the summer of 2005 I had the opportunity to travel in a power boat along the Yukon River with a film-maker who was making a documentary about my old team, Paddler's Abreast. After the trip I painted Thinking About Canoes I & II. Participating in this race was for me a personally transformative experience as the bright colours and big energy of these works implies.
