Fund raiser for Haiti

If you are looking for a nice stocking stuffer
I have donated several photographs for a project that is raising money
for Haiti - through the medical professionals in Miramichi that go in
and assist each year
The calendars are 10.00 each
and are available at Dr Hudsons office in the Medical Arts building suite 6
and the New Castle Medicine Shoppe and also River Rehab Physio.

its a good cause and you get something useful to boot !

Canada National Bird poll is in - the Gray Jay wins!

I had a lovely afternoon encounter with one of these which resulted
it a special painting a couple of years back.

I love it when I can look back at a painting and still feel the experience
I had that 'created' the subject matter.

Pouring Rain and making new Friends

Who would have thought that a horrible day of heavy rain,
could turn out so good!

I'd like to thank neighbors and new and past customers of Water Street Gallery
that drove out here to Derby today in this pouring rain to check
out what we had to offer at Firefly Studio and for all your purchases.

We started out the day a little 'under the weather' with the gray sky
and pouring rain, and felt happy at the end of it.

Due to that rain, we will be open again on Sunday 12-3pm

stop on by, visit, chat and watch the river with us !

Having a flash back today; here is a commissioned piece I did for someone
of their condo, golf course and Newfoundland dog in the center.
I really enjoyed working on this one.  Its not always about the payment, but also the process and the customers enjoyment as well.

Fire fly by Laura Lea Comeau

An indoor gallery with attached studio - come and sit, watch the river, view the art and visit with the artists, ask us questions.

below her art is Dee's statement:

Raven by Dee Goforth

Moose at Beaubears by Dee Goforth

Since retiring to the Miramichi six years ago, Dee Goforth has taken up photoshopping with a passion. While she enjoys taking photos of a wide range of subjects, her favourite ones generally are crows. Why? Because they are everywhere, make great silhouettes, pose in variety of settings and are very intelligent birds.

With no preconceived notion of the end result, Dee views photo shopping as a highly organic process, and will attempt a variety of techniques to achieve a particular effect. Although time-consuming, experimenting is definitely the fun part. More recently, she’s been focusing on a favourite Canadian icon - the moose!

Stacy Underhill is a creative Jack of all Trades. From website creation to painting abstracts, her creative touch shines in all she tries.  Shes produced jewelry from Jack Pine cones and other objects you would least expect, and then other items that have class and decorative grace.

Winter is still kicking around, but this is what is on the easel.....

The jar of fireflies is almost complete

Took me more than a year to get here, a lot of contemplating, staring
imagining ect ect ect. For most who know me, know that  a year and a half ago
my husband unexpectedly passed away in his sleep.  The same night the
yard was covered in fireflies that had hatched. The experience was magical
at such a sad moment.  This painting is dedicated to him, my greatest supporter.
He has been released from his earthly bounds with the fireflies into the heavens.
Miss him daily.

( That is my hand in the painting )
