While there I took note of the hooked rugs on display, a craft tradition I was not aware of in the province until my sister in law mentioned having to go help set up a display of her mother's rugs at a small museum.
My new favorite artist in Newfoundland though is Cara Kansala of the Grumpy Goat Gallery.
Her whimsical portrayal of Newfoundland traditions and scenes is right up my alley, and I was really tempted to buy one of her acrylics which was for sale at the Madrock Cafe. You can also enjoy her art for free on the side of the Newfoundland Chocolate Company building.
|Lukey's Boat is painted green!|
Lukey's boat is a traditional Newfie song I remember singing on our visits home when I was a child, and never fails to make me smile. See if you agree and click on the live version below! Linking up to Monday Mural.
