Brenna spent the summer living just outside a town of 300 people on the B.C./Yukon border, called Atlin Lake. A six hour round trip from the nearest grocery store, Brenna lived with her partner in a log cabin with no electricity, cell phone reception or running water. They undertook several canoe trips to explore the nearby lake and its smattering of untouched islands, spending up to eight nights at a time in the wilderness. Atlin Lake is an accumulation of plein air paintings undertaken on these canoe trips. These works were painted with the sound of water lapping on the gravel shore, the smell of campfire smoke, and the whine of summer mosquitoes. With lake water in her travel mug to wet her brushes, and her makeshift palette balanced on river rocks, Brenna illustrates several of the islands that she camped on. After completion, each painting was carefully placed in a dry bag for safe keeping during the next day’s paddle. She has also created three images of the log cabin that she slept in while on the mainland.
