Description Distinctive noises resonate around the island creating a host of unique sounds that culminate into one mood characteristic of New Life Island. A calm breeze, rusting of trees, the mesmerizing chirp of birds, pounding thumps during carpetball, laughter, and canoes resting in the water, all echo throughout the island creating the backdrop to an influential memory.Perhaps the most distinct reverb is created by the camp bell that stands in front of the dining hall. This train bells once bronze finish has since tarnished to an iconic teal that is known so well by the campers. Its many uses range from the call for meals to the ending signal of a late night game.
The New Life Island Collection Member Since November 2007 Artist Statement The New Life Island Collection consists of six oil paintings on linen that have been varnished and framed.
