Artist's Description

Georgian Bay (French: baie Georgienne) (Ojibway: Manidoowi-zaaga`igan or Waasaagamaa) is a large bay of Lake Huron, located in Ontario, Canada..
Georgian Bay like the other great lakes abounds with islands…There are tens of thousands of them.
Most of these islands are along the east side of the bay and are collectively known as the “Thirty Thousand Islands,” including the larger Parry Island……some too small to land any craft on, others big enough to spend a day fishing and picnicking, still others are large enough for towns and villages….in fact there so many, there are islands within islands….
In winter, when the snow falls, the little islands, often nothing more than rocks and fir trees, become the stuff of paintings and folk tales….
This tiny one with it’s small glade of firs, is perfect for this Christmas fantasy. Here I’ve painted it in a light snow fall, with the stars, the snow and the lights from a distant town, lighting the trees

THE day dreams out, the night is brooding in,
Across this world of vapor, wood, and wave.
Things blur and dim. Cool silvery ripples lave
The sands and rustling reed-beds.
Now begin night’s dreamy choruses,
The murmurous din of sleepy voices.
Tremulous, one by one,the stars blink in.
The dusk drives out the sun;
And all the world the hosts of darkness win
..W.W Campbell…Georgian Bay Evening
