Open Studio Snaps

Stop in for a coffee and a chat!
I have 3 projects in progress:
Mussels, Sea Urchins, Starfish, and Sand Dollar lino-cut plates being made;
Surfacing Mat being hooked;
 and Netting Needles being embroidered.
Eric Winsor’s new image is on the drying rack this morning,
an edition of 10 to be watercoloured once the ink is dry.

Studio Day

Eric Winsor’s three new images. 
The images are of the Anglican church door in Pool’s Island, boats on the slip at Brookfield, and Cabot Island lighthouse.

Clifford’s Education Fund is being reworked. 
I started hooking brown stripes into the salt fish mat from 2006 where there used to be twigs, representing boughs between the fish and the longers. This will turn an installation piece into a usable rug.

Our Studio Day happens every Wednesday.  Drop in and check it out next week…
Thanks to visitors and studio users Eric, Barbara, and Eleanor for making this week eventful.

Icebergs in June: Day Eight

Iceberg | Watercolour by Eric Winsor 2007 | $29 + HST

Iceberg count: zip, zilch, zero!

This little watercolour painting by Eric is based on an iceberg seen at Lumsden North.  Lumsden and Cape Freels have some of the nicest sandiest beaches in the province, and are lovely iceberg watching zones. 

Also great dog running areas, as Jack will tell you!  Lots of shells, sticks, and smelly things to chew on for a Labrador.

Brenda Stratton arrives today- don’t forget about her talk tomorrow night!

Icebergs in June: Day Six

Majestic | Watercolour by Eric Winsor 2009 | $18 + HST

Iceberg count: zero

But we have quite a few pictures of Icebergs, including this one by Eric Winsor of Brookfield.  Eric started taking a few drawing classes at Norton’s Cove Studio back when the studio first opened, and has been hooked on image making since.  We have a large selection of his etchings, lino-cut prints, and watercolours here at the studio for sale.  Stop by and check them out!
