Black Sheep Gallery We have some great additions to our web site this month, and hopefully they will help take your mind off the weather. The first is a Scottish gentleman by D. Munroe which is perfectly attired in traditional Highland dress with tartan, sporran and Balmoral bonnet. The artist’s attention to detail in this piece is impressive.

Leo Naugler, inspired by the shape of one of his mothers’ dinner plates, has transformed it into a peaceful painting of men fishing with seagulls soaring overhead.

Another delightful carving is Charlie Tanner’s interpretation of two dogs, one black and the other spotted. We’re not sure whether they are howling at the moon or dancing in anticipation of the arrival of their owner, but they are done in Charlie’s unique style, and are the only dog carvings we have seen by him.

Also new to the site is a dancing couple by Barry Colpitts. Two of Barry’s chairs were recently added to the permanent collection of the Canadian Museum of History. He also has work in the permanent collections of the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia and the Beaverbrook Gallery in Fredericton, New Brunswick.

And finally, we have two new acquisitions by Donald Boudreau – a delightful fawn and a mourning dove. One of the first wave of contemporary Nova Scotian folk artists discovered by Chris Huntington in the early 1970s, Donald carved a variety of subjects including life sized figures, but his animals have always been our favorites.
