Bottle Cove home in a painting

The other day we were in Corner Brook getting materials for working on completing the cottage at Bottle Cove. Across the road from the paint store was a shop selling various souvenirs and crafts, along with prints and paintings. Michele went in to have a look – as one does – and found a painting of Bottle Cove by a local artist. It was a landscape with faint overlays of a ‘naïve’ style, shown to good effect in the representation of the fishermen’s sheds and the roads and our own signal red cottage and barn. The barn is set where the cottage is in real life, and is drawn over scale, in comparison to the cottage.

We had to buy it.
