During the winter, painting outside becomes almost impossible, so Tom Thomson spent the colder months in his small studio in Toronto working on larger paintings. As the weather got warmer, he would venture out, looking forward to the time when he could be in the landscape of Algonquin Park for extended periods of time, camping, fishing and making sketches.

A key event in his annual calendar was the period during the thaw when the ice in the rivers and lakes abated, and the water could be safely traversed in a canoe; Thomson could then move deeper into the landscape, and find new sketching spots. This sketch shows exactly this time of the year; the ice in the river breaking up, and the drab landscape just beginning to come back to life under a sunny, vibrantly blue, cloudless sky.
