A couple of weekends ago, when I went for a quick retreat to Waskesiu, I decided to head to South Bay to paint a full view of King's Island. It was just me, a large family of Canada geese, a gigantic black raven and a dead fish on the shore. So very serene and tranquil. I painted a little 6x6 that I still haven't posted yet, but it looks like this. I liked the 6x6 so much that I decided to use it as a study to paint this 8x8 version for the Lifestyles store.

King's Island is named for Prime Minister MacKenzie King who had a cabin on the mainland looking at this island. I don't believe that cabin is still there. I have painted this island only once before from shots taken on the boat, so they were partial island images. Below is one of them...

King's Island is the only island on Waskesiu Lake, so it deserves some decent props for being a unique place to picnic and explore.
