Brigus South is a very small fishing community with houses tucked in around the cove.  When I came across this setting for the painting I found the road literally dropped over the edge of the cliff.  I was left awe struck by the beauty that was before me.  The feeling always returns each time I sketch there.

Located south of St. John’s on highway 10, known as the Irish Loop, Brigus South is about an hour’s drive.  The communities along the shore date back several hundred years.  The painting expresses my deeply rooted feelings which have developed for this place.
