THE ALBERTA BARHEAD ART CLUB
For the ladies from Barrhead Art Club, Green Bay, Newfoundland not only offered them inspiration for painting but a Newfoundland experience they won't soon forget.
The girls enjoyed a different location each day accompanied by Doug Downey. While each of them have their preferred discipline of art, all were eager to learn the techniques of pallet knife painting under the instruction of Doug. They were joined on site each day by myself to not only take pictures of them in action but to bring them fresh coffee & tea.
During their stay in Newfoundland they not only enjoyed spectacular scenery but also experienced our culture, hospitality and many things traditional of Newfoundland ie. icebergs, kitchen parties, boat tours, jigs dinner, pan fried cod and of course a screechin in ceremony on their last night complete with newfie entertainment.
The ladies left with beautiful paintings and very fond memories of Newfoundland and their stay here at the retreat. Their experience here will be featured in their upcoming club newsletter and the group will be displaying their paintings at an art show in December complete with a full Newfoundland theme.
