“FISHERMEN GATHERING”, OLD PERLICAN HARBOUR

Although the sunsets take your breath away in Old Perlican, the most vital part of the harbour is definitely the people that frequent the boats, the docks, parking lots, roads and fish plant of this busy, busy hub.  The people ebb and flow seamlessly into the many various social structures that co-exist within the shelter of the port. Weather, water and fish news, jokes and gossip pass like rapid-fire batons from crew to crew, family to family, captain to captain, neighbour to neighbour. It is an ancient version of the internet, really - reliable for keeping all news instantly up to date and all connections flowing like well-greased lightning.

ANOTHER NEW PAINTING: "SLICK"

slick, old Perlican, Harbour, Kathy Bailey, Kathy Marlene, Bailey, artwork, painting, Newfoundland, Labrador, NL, Charlie Barrett, boat, water, waterscape, nautical, lobster, fishing, Christina Parker, Gallery, glaze oil, Canadian, Cultural, Yamaha,

 

I just simply love the water and the colours. How many colours can be in water, reflecting beneath a white boat? And how beautiful and diverse could the colours be, within the white hull of a boat?

 

This work-horse of a boat defies its humble stature, juxtaposed against the racy and slick ripples of water; it elegantly dances with light and colour by means of its radically modified hull. It might be practical to alter the form of the side of your boat to make hauling lobster pots easier, but who would guess you would be creating such beauty by doing it? And there is the paradox, right there.

ANOTHER NEW WORK! "THIN ICE"

Thin Ice, Old Perlican, Island, Harbour, sunset, ice, pans, bergs, icebergs, global warming, fishery, Newfoundland and Labrador, NL, Nfld., Christina Parker, Gallery

2017 – it is an extraordinary year. Ice pans and icebergs litter the huge and small bays and harbours of Newfoundland and Labrador into the summer. The flotilla wanders day in, day out at the whims of the wind and currents. The harbour is completely packed one evening and empty the next. Icebergs the size of skyscrapers move at speeds of motorboats, or lodge on underwater shoals and stubbornly stay for months.

 

Mostly, the ice pans pack the bays. They pack enough and they are substantial enough to STOP the fishery entirely. The emergency rescue services simply cannot get to where they need to when fishermen come to peril in the mine fields of wandering ice. 

 

It is a very mixed blessing to behold the breathtaking beauty of the ice pans as they circle Old Perlican Island, at the mouth of the harbour. How can a Newfoundlander deny this incomprehensible level beauty? How can a Newfoundlander deny the peril of both the moment and of the much larger issue of the future, as they witness global warming changing the face of the Arctic, of Newfoundland and of the world. Everything is at stake.

 

NEW PAINTING: "HEART OF PERLICAN"


Heart of Perlican, Old Perlican, Harbour, boats, Button's Marine, nautical, scene, waterscape, Newfoundland, fishery, fishing, water, oil, painting, CGOS, English Harbour

This is a part of Old Perlican Harbour where smaller local boats are tethered.  The harbour road runs beside the docks, but the harbour is quieter here, away from the frantic hustle and bustle of forklifts by the main wharfs, near the fish plant entrances. Button’s Marine is here, providing for the hardware needs of the independent fishermen that run the boats. These docks are where smaller operations quietly and diligently execute the daily tasks of prepping and finishing their fishing excursions. Men gather to talk on the road of this area at the end of the day. I particularly love this part of the harbour.

BUILD AND MAKE YOUR OWN CANVAS PANEL

 

Join Kathy Marlene Bailey, B.A. Art Ed., Creative Arts

 

October 1, 2017 - Sunday - One day Workshop all materials included.

 

Description:   The substrate of your painting is critical to the long-term life of it. Using new ideas and new products, learn state-of-the-art ways to equalize the pressure on the canvas fabric, make the canvas impermeable to the acidity of paint and protect it from cracking and/or getting punctured. Learn how to protect your paintings from the ravages of an array of current bad manufacturing practices that radically reduce the life of your painting. Easily and quickly stretch your own, using the latest and soundest practice, very much recommended by leading art conservators. Your substrate will cost about the same as one that you would buy in the store but it will be a beautiful, infinitely superior product – built with an excellent foundation for paint and built for the long, long haul!  
$100.00 PLUS TAX,  ALL MATERIALS INCLUDED, DEPOSIT REQUIRED   CALL TAMMY 573-0180

THE 2017 CANADIAN GLAZE OIL SOCIETY INAUGURAL MEMBERS' EXHIBITION CATALOG

Check out the catalog of our exhibit that is currently running at the Tillsonburg Station Arts Centre! I am super-proud of the work of these amazing artists, and proud to be the first president of this brand new Society. I hope that many of you will make it out to Tillsonburg Ontario to see it. It is running now, until June 3rd. The artists' reception will be June 3rd, 2-4pm. See you there!

"HEART OF PERLICAN", UNDERPAINTINGS

I am getting there! These images show: 1) the Grisaille Underpainting on the right, done in brown and white over an Indian red priming, 2) the Velatura Foundation on the left, that sets values into colour, but most importantly establishes a light structure for the glazes to "harness", 3) The First Hardening Glaze, where colours are glazed on to harness the light, and further refinements are dropped into the wet film.  I still have a long way to go, still! Onto the complex final glazes!

FACEBOOK POST ON TED GODWIN

Whoever 'likes' this post will be given an artist and has to post a piece by that artist, along with this message, the idea is to occupy Facebook with art, breaking up all the political posts! Thank you Wayne Moore, for assigning me Ted Godwin!  I was unfamiliar with Ted’s work, so I googled him. I was delighted to have been greeted on the screen by this painting:

Ted Godwin, Canadian landscape, ponds, Autumn, Thanksgiving

I think it is called “Small Cove”, and is at Wallace Gallery in Calgary, AB.

Seeing this visual feast was wonderful to behold. I love the complexity of this landscape. Because it is so integrated, it does not overwhelm my vision; instead, it engages it. This is a difficult and fastidious task to embark upon, when an artist takes on such subjects. It is like riding a bucking bronco. You are always on the edge of “pulling it off”. Finally, if you are lucky, you do. But it has taken all you’ve got. But what results! I could look at this painting all day. It is in the same way that I could look all day if discovering this pond in nature. It gives the same sense of splendour, wonder and enchantment.

And this is not all the latitude Ted Godwin had! You should see the rest of his work! There are two more that I cut and pasted below.

Ted Godwin just died in 2013. He was a contemporary of my parents. When I look at his larger body of work, it reminds me of my parents who were both artists. His work is different from theirs, but just as you can look at old photos of other people’s families and it reminds them of your own times, you can look at old artistic paths of those of the same eras and see similarities. It was very interesting.

Ted Godwin is an accomplished and much acclaimed Canadian artist, whom I had never heard of. I am quite glad that Wayne Moore assigned him to me, and that I got to share this wonderful painting and discover the work of this artist.

Here are two more that show both his latitude and why his path reminds me of my parents – especially my dad.

Ted Godwin, Gathering, 1957, Abstract, Abstraction
Ted Godwin, Dragon Party Time, 1961, abstraction, Canadian

All these works can be found at Wallace Gallery in Calgary, Alberta.
