Her use of colour and shading is wonderful, and I joked with her that this rug would look sooo perfect in my home, but she didn't take the hint... I can't imagine why.. surely after working on it for 17 years, she must be tired of it by now...??!!!
Other pieces also showed wonderful colour use and beautiful shading - the skies in Inukshuk by Shirley Lewis and Blue Heron by Mary Grant are just so realistic, and so well done, don't you agree?
I seemed to be drawn to many of the pieces that had "Maritime flavor". One of my most favourite pieces in the entire show is by my good friend Carole Christie, My Dream Summer. Carole has mastered the art of using thick textured yarns and wool roving to add more texture and dimension to her work. I'm sure this piece was inspired by the cottages at the Amherst Shore in Nova Scotia where Carole spends her summers. Below are a few other favourites: Whale by Elaine Gunter, Seagull by Gladys Connely and Periwinkle Blue by Lynne Fudge. Do check out this Show- you won't regret it...
Every man is an artist painting his life every day.
