I've blogged about my passion for Ontario's scenic Long Point region before, so it should come as no surprise that I immediately fell for Mississauga artist Joseph Sampson's incredible waterscapes when I came across his booth at the recent One of a Kind Show. Although a handful of his oil-on-canvas creations actually depict the north shore of Lake Erie that I call home, many of them convey the dynamic beauty of Ontario's south coast, regardless of where exactly Joseph drew inspiration from. I had to get up close just to assure myself these weren't photographs... You can almost hear the crashing surf and feel the brisk lake wind whipping your hair. Gorgeous stuff, and a remarkable way of bringing the outdoors in. Check out the rest of Joseph's portfolio at the Sampson Studio website here.
