No one created a warmer winter scene than Charles Wysocki with his carefree and fantastic days as captured with a child’s eyes. Unlike “Salty Witch Bay,” “Hickoryhaven Canal” has real roots in Wysocki’s past. The memory was compliments of an uncle Charles who would visit a cabin on the lake in upper Michigan, an area called Houghton Lake.
When the snow fell and a canal behind the cabin froze over, the community would embrace the opportunity to enjoy winter at its finest. “Skating on the canal,” Charles recalled, “became a party from early morning until nightfall. People sang, played instruments, built fires, sold goodies and were obviously having a good time.” It was the perfect place to pass happy hours on a cold winter’s day.
Winter is a time of warm and pleasant memories and “Hickoryhaven Canal” is that perfect spot that exists in everyone’s imagination brought to life on canvas by Charles Wysocki.
