Workspace Canada: Martin Weinhold

A few years ago, I met a young German Photographer by the name of Martin Weinhold.  
He was (and still is) working on a project called Workspace Canada, a series of portraits of Canadians in their workspaces.  He had grown up with a certain stereotype image of Canadians: maple syrup eating friendly people who dressed in cowboy hats and boots and decorated their homes with moose heads type of stuff. So he set out to get a real sense of the Canadian landscape through its workforce.

A contact sheet I sent back to Martin in Germany with some notes and doodles...

You can check out his website for updates on the project, which just so happens to include my own mug. Funny story: without my help, he just so happened to meet my father's crew on Tug Point Vim while they were tied up at St. John's harbour and they are also included in Workspace Canada.

Norton's Cove Mini-Prints

A snapshot taken by S. Simpson
Thanks to S. Simpson who sent me this snap of the three mini-prints she bought at my studio this spring. She's done a lovely job of framing them, and thought I'd show you all an example of what to do with these little prints if you purchase them unframed.

Surfacing Continues...

I'm working on a series of 9 8x10 canvases.
 Each oil painting is based on the same photograph of waves, yet the images are unique.

Here's Surfacing 6-5 in progress...

Check out the art for sale page to see the finished pieces.

Inspiration


Today was spent enjoying the weather, our sailboat (Virtue), and family.  Duke, Fred, Jack the Sailor Dog and I sailed from our overnight stop of Bragg's Island back home to Brookfield.  I took hundreds of photographs of the sea, to use over the coming months as inspiration for my spring show SURFACING. Pretty good reason to have the shop closed up for a day, wouldn't you say?
