On Lismer’s Guide in Algonquin Park

I regard The Guide’s House as the most peaceful painting; it trembles with peace by drawing you to the power above that peace. Time skips a beat then slows down in perfect rhythm. You can hear the poplar and birch leaves whispering and feel the warm sun– at some point in looking at it, though, you forget yourself or you no longer feel strange.
