This Week at Norton’s Cove Studio

Lots of product in the old shop shelves! Hoodies, tees, cards, mini-prints, bookmarks, bath bombs, candles, chocolate, artwork, soap, and even hand sanitizer all made here in NL.
#WIP: I’ve been working on book illustrations! 1/4 done.
New bath products from Rocks & Roots Co. arrived today! The shop smells so nice!

Excursions: Deadman’s Bay

Beautiful evening light and the roar of the ocean is better than meditation to me. This little section of the coastline is found by traveling on a dirt road for a few minutes after turning into Deadman’s Bay, just north of New-Wes-Valley on the Road to the Shore.

Next!

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! 👌

Norton’s Cove Mini-Prints getting signed and sorted on my well lit office table.

The Broadcast

I had the great pleasure of being interviewed by Jane Adey for The (Fisheries) Broadcast on CBC radio recently. She did an excellent job of filling in the details of the history of my heritage building/studio, and ended with the perfect finishing touch.

Excursions

Excursions

My new Studio Assistant (who you’ll be hearing from on a weekly basis), Jack, and I went for a walk at Deadman’s Bay Beach after work today, and I thought I’d share a few snaps with you…

Excursions Around the Bay

It was a beautiful day for a walk on the Greenspond trail. The seas are still rough along the shore after some recent high winds, making for some pretty spectacular view and quite a symphony of crashing waves.

It felt great to be outside in the sun after a long spell of indoor activities. (I’ve caught up on some home maintenance that had been put off for far too long. )

Jack had a great time too, and doused himself in all the bog holes he could find. Luckily, he’s happy enough to hop in the shower, so he no longer smells like a bog dog!
