Midges as Tree Swallows
Little St. Simons Island, Georgia
March 16, 2018
Oil on canvas
9 x 11 in.

 

 

 

As the sun set, a cloud of biting midges (no-see-ums) rose from the marsh grasses
to "help" me paint. After about 20 minutes of accumulating on the wet paint, they gave
the sky the appearance it has sometimes on Little St. Simons when thousands of tree
swallows fill the skies.
