Fort Amherst, P.E.I.

Fort Amherst, P.E.I.Fort Amherst just outside of Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, Canada, provides a spectacular view overlooking the Atlantic. The earthen red walls and lush, rolling hilltops are all that remains of Fort Amherst. The lush grassy fields and abandoned light houses captures the essence of what I saw that overcast day back in the summer of 2006. This little piece of Canada was built in 1758 by the British. Its main purpose was to collect intelligence of French troops and ship movements as well as to declare a British presence in the area. This painting is the 4th in the “P.E.I” series of small oil paintings and 1st of the “Fort Amherst” pieces, painted on a 8 x 10 inch stretched canvas using professional GRUMBACHER oils. A good quality frame will enhance the beauty of this piece and will, I’m sure, look fantastic in any room of your home or office.
