WARNING: THIS POST CONTAINS PROFANITY

If you are easily offended, look away now.

This image was inspired by some wonderful friends who have adopted this as their life’s motto.  It is not meant to be offensive- quite the opposite.  It is an answer to the question: what will ‘they’ think?  We have one life to live, and we need to do what makes us happy, even if it means pushing the boundaries of what society expects of us. I used a rose as a symbol of love and the idea of always having time to stop and smell the roses.

“A part of the UNDERNEATH body of work, these Smudge Herring paintings remind us that we are in this together! As much as we are all individuals, there is great comfort in knowing that we are not alone in our struggles.  I intend to stop making smudge herring paintings at no. 100, and make a slight shift in my image choices.  “

This week at Norton’s Cove Studio & Café…

…I’m making plans for the 2023 season!

January is reserved each year for book-keeping year-end procedures and a study of what happened in the past 12 months, with a focus on what we should repeat and what we should change to make the next 12 months even better. There are applications to fill out with deadlines approaching very soon, marketing plans to implement, and tax forms to fill in. I love making plans!

And I’m planning to finish a small group of paintings that I started in November and haven’t had time to complete this month! Focussing on making new artwork this year is very important to me, as 2022 was certainly not my most productive year.

I’ve been changing the prices of some of my older pieces that have been hanging around too long for my liking- have a look at the online shop to see what’s on sale!

The studio will be open this week: Saturday 10am-6pm and any other time by chance or appointment. Call or text me at 536-8166 to make an appointment.

I’d love to hear from you: what did you like best about Norton’s Cove Studio & Café in 2022? What would you like to see changed?

Christmas @ Norton’s Cove

If you’re out and about in New-Wes-Valley today, the studio is open all day, until 9pm. I’ll be here working on some last minute hand crafted gifts for friends and family, and welcome you to browse the old shop shelves for a unique last minute gift for your own checklist!

The town of New-Wes-Valley is planning a fireworks display tonight over Norton’s Cove, and while we had hoped to have the Café open to serve drinks for the fireworks display, the timing isn’t suited for us as we have such a big day ahead of us tomorrow with our Tibb’s Eve event. The studio will be open though, so do drop in to get a warm!

We still have Tibb’s Eve tickets available here at the shop, and I’d really appreciate it if you can share that information with your peeps who are in the Greater Norton’s Cove Area. There are convenient social media share buttons right in the online shop if you use facebook, twitter, or pinterest. Today is the last day to buy tickets and submit your menu choices.

Happy Christmas, everyone!
Especially to the Team Norton’s Cove who are hard at work serving up suppers to groups celebrating the season this week – and getting ready for Tibb’s Eve too!
Thank you Ted, Duke, Trina, Kasie, and Matthew for making Christmas special in the Cove!

Christmas @ Norton’s Cove

The time is flying by, and I’m sooooooo not ready for the calendar to tell me there’s only a week left until Christmas! Things have been so busy here, with my new job with Norton’s Cove Marine, and still planning events for the Café, and making product to sell in the studio/shop… My days have been pretty full!
