16" x 20" Oil on canvas I can see this island from where I live. Its a majestic, and pristine island with dramatic cliffs in the Bay of Fundy. Its also home to a genetic biosphere of rare creatures found no where else. Its as if time has stood still for this island. The name is said to be an anglicized version of Ile Haute or "High Island" French explorer Samuel de Champlain gave it in 1604. This painting resulted from a trip along the Nova Scotia coastline where the island is much closer to shore.
