And now that #printapalooza is complete again, it’s time for signing, scoring, folding, matting, chopping, tasseling, and packaging Norton’s Cove Cards, Mini-Prints, and bookmarks! And the weather is perfect for such indoor work! 👌
My Lilies are finally ready to find new homes to brighten!
Find them in the online shop HERE or stop in at the studio to get yours! They are selling for $80 each matted as shown here in my garden, or $120 in a chic white frame.
Fresh Caplin, a 2014 original lino-cut by yours truly, is about to be sold out! I have one impression left available, number 34 in an edition of 36 + 3 TPs.
When drawing the image, I used a photograph taken by my aunt Linda of a bucket of fresh caplin. Someone pointed out that it looks like it was designed after the old codfish postage stamp, which I agree with completely, although I hadn’t thought of it before.
I have had my personal experiences with capelin, including a stint at the local fish plant as a caplin sorter in 1990. Fresh out of high-school, I took the job with an air of excitement, but lasted less than one shift! A night shift in which I found myself sleepy, cold, and hungry enough to faint away and knock out two front teeth on the floor as I went down! What an embarrassment! (I couldn’t say the word embarrassment, or anything else with an ess until I was fixed up with new teeth!)
If you would like to be the new owner of this last piece of the edition, you can find it in the online shop here, or drop in at the studio! It is matted to fit a 10×10 inch frame and will cost you $90 + applicable taxes.
Quite a few weeks ago, Alexis Templeton and I started making some platters with my printing plate for Humpbacks. The finished pieces are ready to go. You can pick one up at Alexis Templeton Studio in St. John’s, or here at Norton’s Cove Studio… I have four in stock. Of course, each one is a little different. It’s great fun to see what comes out of the kiln at Alexis’ studio.
