Cousin's Reunion in Grimsby September 2016
Here is how you 'read' my new painting: In September 2016 on a fine early-autumn, blue-sky day, nine Marentette family cousins gathered in Grimsby Ontario, a small city in the Niagara Peninsula surrounded by Lake Erie to the west and Lake Ontario to the East, hemmed in by the ridge of the Niagara Escarpment. The nine cousins brought 7 spouses. One cousin also brought two teenagers. Two of the cousins brought their child-bearing daughters (each of those bringing one baby and one protective husband each). All are represented. Oil on canvas. Framed in black.
