Gilligan’s Island, North Thompson River. Acrylic on canvas. 30×40″. Available.

Gilligan’s Island was painted in the early 90’s. It was noon-time when I took a photo from the CN service road at Exlou but I turned the scene to dusk. I added the campers because friends who grew up at Exlou told stories of camping on ‘Gilligan’s’ Island as kids. Of course, in high water, the island doesn’t exist.
