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.
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.
9 x 12 inches
Etching on 250g cream Arches cotton paper
Shown at my 2007 solo exhibit, FISH, at the Craft Council Gallery. My husband and I are both Pisces. We’re shown here as two salt fish, tied together at the tails with a ribbon.
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.
