This is a painting of rural Newfoundland that was completed in a mere two or three afternoons but in truth took the artist as many years to paint as she is and is one that she has a particularly strong relationship with. The grid not only echoes to emphasize the simple building in this quaint village but also the nature of making a painting. The work is self-reflective as a grid can be used as a tool to transfer an image from a photo, by dividing the image up and calculating and increasing the ratios to know what will go where. The grid also acts as a screen to keep the viewer from entering the space. The thick quickly applied strokes show a rather unselfconscious quality. The boys on the bottom right are fashioned out of the same strokes as the environment they inhabit and both inquisitive and detached.
