“Haven’t painted for ages it seems and feel as if my painting days are over… Occasionally I get a flicker of an idea then it fades or sufficient enthusiasm is lacking and there we are. Nothing to do about it. I am at a crossroads really and have yet no visions to know what to do; what road to take. But my oh my, I am anxious to be on my way- and that is trying when one doesn’t know the way.”

June 1933, Lawren Harris Letter to Emily Carr.
