It has been a long time since I have posted anything. The reasons are many but the main one has been technology…my old computer could not keep pace with WordPress at all. Regardless, I have continued to make art and continued to enjoy its process whether good or bad. I have no idea as to whether I have posted this one under another title or not, but I like it and had great fun making it so here goes…I hope you enjoy it and I hope you have all been well. As always…keep making art, whatever your art may be.
I made this, and titled it, last weekend and wasn’t sure if I’d post it until I read a friend’s post this evening about seeing the crown jewels in London as a boy with his Mom or his Grandma, he couldn’t recall. The best part though was how happy these memories made him. I was inspired by his memories and his joy in sharing them and then I remembered my joy in creating this little artwork. My friend, by the way, has two blogs, one is called “frogs pad” and the other is called “the black crane”. Both are here on wordpress and my family and I have created many happy memories of our own reading his blog together. I hope you enjoy and keep making art.
Very much missing my home this week. This piece brings me back to a boat tour I did last summer during which we saw loads of humpback whales. It was a joyous day!
Quidi Vidi Brewing Company Copyright 2014 Lorelei Walsh Park
Quidi Vidi Village or “The Gut” as it is also called is an “outport” within the city of St. John’s, Newfoundland, Canada. Way back in the 1800’s I had relatives that lived there. On a recent trip to the island I had the opportunity to take a few photographs of Quidi Vidi. There was quite a bit of fog the day I was there, which, I think, added to the mystery of the place. And for the beer drinkers, this brewery makes some incredible beers if you ever have a chance to get there!
