Icebergs in June: Day Twenty-Three




Iceberg count: scarcer than hen’s teeth
 
Here’s an installment from Paul Kirby:
 
   Another 2009 iceberg: It was out past Offer Island. The original (top) was painted in Greenspond then I photocopied a photocopy in black and white (bottom) and coloured it in pencil crayon… love the depth and brown contrast with orange outline.
 
I love seeing how the same subject matter is portrayed by different artists.
 
How big are these pieces, PK?  And are they for sale?

Icebergs in June: Day Fourteen

Paul Kirby’s Tin Art | Icebergs are $20 each + HST

Iceberg count: Zip.  But I can smell them coming.  There’s a freshness in the air since last night that makes me think that the icebergs are lurking in the fog out there.

These little icebergs came down from Ontario today.  Paul Kirby makes them, and Paul has to live in Ontario all winter.  So while he’s dreaming of coming back to Greenspond for the summer and fall, he makes images indicative of Newfoundland.  Those Kirbys from ‘pond are a wonderful artsy crowd, and I get the pleasure of having most of them visit my shop every year.  Paul will be teaching our Tuesday morning art class this summer- check out the classes & workshops page for info.  I’m looking forward to being his student again.  Last summer we had a lovely group that had lots of fun in the loft, following Paul’s lead.
