Weekend events

Two of my copper pieces (shown above) have been selected for the Craft Council of NL Annual Members' Exhibit which opens at 2pm this Saturday, June 27 (2nd floor of Devon House). On the same day, I'll be a vendor at Some Good Market, Canonwood Hall (St. Thomas' parish hall) on Military Road... just a few minutes walk from Devon House so you could take in both events! These copper pieces, Duelling Squid and Fox Skull, are 11" x 14", framed and limited edition (I'm only making 6 of each design... each one is numbered accordingly). I might have another Duelling Squid with me at the market (working on it today) but you'll find both at the exhibit. Please drop by and check them out! At the market I will also have my usual wares: linocut prints, silk-screened t-shirts, painting reproductions and smaller copper-tooled pieces.

Tuckamore etching

Etching class was a great experience. Shown are the three prints I pulled as well as the copper plate. Signed up for a membership at St. Michael's Printshop so I might be trying out some other methods later in the year.

I'm taking an etching class on the weekend so I'm doing some drawing this week to get ready for it. I'd forgotten how much I like gnarled trees.... must do more. This poor tuckamore is barely hangin' on.

Fox skull underpainting

An underpainting of a fox skull on the easel today. Based on a photo by Laurie LeGrow. This scoundrel raided Laurie's chicken coop last year.

Mechacod Linocut

Mechacod: the linocut. Since doing the t-shirts, I had a few requests for prints. I'm not currently set up for screen-printing on paper so I made a new linocut plate. Edition of 60.

Big weekend!

I couldn't resist taking part in both of these events this weekend even though they conflict. Manufactured Right here is at the Remax Centre Saturday and Sunday. My friend Katherine will be at my table on Saturday so that I can also be at Sin City Crafters at the Rocket. Busy now trying to double up my inventory AND trying to have a new 2-colour linocut ready for the weekend.

Buy local

My cartoon for this month's Northeast Avalon Times. Two "big" concerts going head-to-head this summer on the same day: one in St. John's and one in Grand Falls creating a little townies vs. baymen action. Enjoy the show if yer goin' but don't forget to buy local when you can!

Whistler's Puffin

Whistler's Puffin (with apologies to Whistler and his mother). The original painting was actually called "Arrangement in Grey and Black No.1". My version has a bit more colour. And a lot more puffin. Still tweaking it a bit but it's pretty well done. (20" x 20", oil on canvas)

New addition to the small copper-tooled series I started last year (killick, cod, etc).
