Description:. Mountie rescues woman from canoe

Comment: One thing that can't be said about many commercial artists is “that there's no mistaking their work...” There was always somebody trying to achieve the same goal in a similar enough manner to cause confusion. It's easy to understand where this comes from... the more accomplished a commercial artist becomes, the more his or her work is seen and consequently the more people think, “Well, I could do that...” Imitation is, after all the most sincere form of flattery. Look at how many aspiring artists have tried to ape Charles Dana Gibson, Norman Rockwell, or Saunders, or Elvgren or Leyendecker, or Fuchs, or Cornwell and the list could go on and on. It's long been something akin to a cottage industry. My point here is that any of these artists when they are in their groove cannot be successfully imitated and this is the case with this piece specifically... no mistaking this for anyone other than Saunders.
