Gros Morne, Newfoundland
Weather Changing, Bonne Bay 31"x44"
In 2009 our painting group traveled to Gros Morne for 16 days. Our home base was a house just outside of Woody Point along the coast of Bonnie Bay.
The first night of our arrival, we heard Christopher Pratt speak about Gros Morne National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. One phrase he used to describe Newfoundland and its people, ‘coastal dignity’, stuck with us as we set about this intense painting trip.
We were inspired by the sheer geological variety of the landscape - from the Tablelands to fjord lakes like Western Brook Pond tucked in between 2,000 ft cliffs. Everywhere you look, you are surrounded by inspiration on all sides. You see the pride of these coastal people in the distinct architecture of their houses, outbuildings and beautiful dories.
Pastels - soft pastel on paper, framed with mats and glass. Canvases- silkscreen paint and acrylic on canvas, framed. Dimensions describe work before framing.
