I had promised the owners Dennis and Margaret Bank that I would paint en plein air when I delivered another large painting to the large and growing gallery at the 1000 Islands Village. This painting is the result of that effort.
1000 Islands Village is certainly a hive of activity. The glory of the old stone building was being reconstructed and the Banks have a fine vision of the future. 1000 Islands Village is also the home of the River West Company - A Lifestyle Boutique for Mind, Body and Home. The Riverbank Gallery is developing as well. 1000 ISLANDS VILLAGE 1120 County Road 2 East Brockville, ON K6V 5T1
The midday sun was strong and stark. The air was full of tiny midges that were very intent on their own life cycle. Pairs of midges were bonded and those that landed on the wet oils could not be saved. They became one with the painting. These midges did not bite and were an important food source for the tree swallows that also flew around me. I tried very hard not to interfere with the birds and the bees - so to speak.
