Petty Harbour, Newfoundland
Starting to like the colour green more and more
Reminds me of a middle finger myself
Frederic Edwin Church
I believe this would be from his 1859 expedition to Labrador, Canada
St. Michael’s Printshop
“The old work horse”
They just gave their Charles brand etching press a cleaning, an oiling and a new coat of paint. Artists have been using this press for 40 years.
I’ve spent many a late night with this press.
And I am going to stop there before I start making inappropriate puns and innuendoes.

Looks to be Bay St. George area of Newfoundland, Canada.
Great video of my friend Kyle Bennett surfing out there this winter.
Grenfell Campus Printshop - Harlem Shake
Sir Wilfred Grenfel Campus - Memorial University
Corner Brook, Newfoundland
It would seem the printshop I work at have created a ‘Harlem Shake’ video. It might just be one of the first print studios to do one - or east the first with actual presses going.
I am not going to defend this passing video fad or what not, it is what it is. The students did a great job and its funny.
Just wondering where the other print studios are to? Nothing from the venerable Tamarind? Open Studio? Hey Helsinki! Where are ya?
Just going to throw down the gauntlet and see what happens.

Taken in St. John’s, Newfoundland, Canada. As soon as I saw it I knew it was from here. The architecture, colour and the Irving oil tanks on the Southside hills.
*I added more details to the original post and a link to his gallery.
My Dad’s 1979 Chevrolet Camero I wish he kept this car. I might have actually gotten my driver’s license. I probably would have ended up being a painter tho…
My grandfather’s house, my home.
I was thinking of home today. Currently on the East coast of Newfoundland there is a huge blizzard - snowfall of 75-80cm. Mass power outages, my folks still don’t have power. I wish I was home to help out.
My Grandfather, Pop, Maxwell John Green [Might be Jonathan - records were shoddy in those days], built the house in the 1940’s and moved it to present location in 1946. You can kind of see Skipper in the doorway. A small home. No closets, bathroom, porch and pantry added later, kitchen, living room and 3 bedrooms.
This picture was taken in early 80’s. Much has changed. I remember when the tree was cut down, and vinyl siding was put on the house.
I liked the cream colour. I like the trim. I love the cut out “G”s by the window - if I was to ever get a printer’s chop it would be that “G”. I miss the big heavy wooden storm door that was on the back.
A storm door to keep out the snow and drafts. I wish it was there now to help my folks out.
