Canoe was shown at Staempfli Gallery in 1959. Also included in the exhibition was a work from 1958 entitled Green Canoe, lent by Mr. and Mrs. Roy Neuberger. Though Green Canoe is similar in theme, another painting titled Canoe, owned by the Sheldon Memorial Art Gallery, University of Nebraska, Lincoln, is more closely related. In both paintings Park rendered two figures in a canoe, facing the viewer, oars at rest. Although the closer figure in the painting of comparison is female, and the palette more subdued, we see in both works the artist developing variants on a single theme.
