It’s Saturday evening at the studio, and fun gal that I am, I am doing a little inventory counting here in my shop. Have I mentioned that 2022 will mark my 20th year in business at Norton’s Cove Studio? Of course I have! In 20 years, I’ve made quite a lot of artwork. And some editions have sold quicker than others. While looking at my inventory tonight, I decided to set some ridiculous sales prices on some of those older pieces. And some other shop stock too: books, chocolate, etc. In store, you’ll find a table of other items marked down by 50% too.

Scroll through the online shop and look for the red sale buttons- no discount code necessary!


My First Etching

A little blast from my past: Introduction to Intaglio Printmaking at the Nova Scotia College of Art & Design (NSCAD), led by Dan O’Neil, in the winter of 1996.  This image was made on a zinc plate using hard-ground and aquatint drawing techniques.  Printed with black ink.  Loved the process, and Dan’s teaching style.

Someday I’m gonna get my picture on the cover of… The Greenspond Letter!

The Greenspond Letter is a journal of the history of Greenspond through poetry, prose, photographs, and interviews.  Greenspond is an island situated on the north side of Bonavista Bay.  It was first settled over three centuries ago in the late 1690s, by people from the West Country of England.  Greenspond is one of the oldest continuously inhabitied outports in Newfoundland.  In 1698 Greenspond was inhabited by 13 men, women and children.  By 1810, the population was 600 and by 1901 the population had risen to 1,726.  Greenspond was one of the major settlements in Newfoundland.  It was an important fishing, shipping and commercial centre and was called “The Capital of the North”. 
The Greenspond Letter is published four times a year in Winter, Spring, Summer and Autumn.  Subscription rates are $24.00 per year.  Please address all correspondence to: Linda White

Icebergs in June: Day Seven

Iceberg count: zero. 

But you can still buy one of three available etchings from this edition.  Iceberg at the Main was created just after my Greenspond exhibit at the Craft Council Gallery.  It is a variable edition, meaning each impression is inked a little differently. 

When standing on Greenspond island, looking towards mainland Newfoundland, a Greensponder might describe the view as ‘at the main’.  Eric Burry gave me the title for this print.

All three have been framed, and two can be seen under Art by Janet Davis if you scroll way down.
