Long Lake Artist-in-Residency Day 5 (Second Painting Finished)
Newfoundland Geology (acrylic collage) by Polly Castor

Newfoundland Geology (acrylic collage) by Polly Castor

I worked hard to finish four paintings enough to talk about them. I gave my presentation last night to a charitable, but interested audience that asked good questions about the work I have been doing. I’m happy with the painting above and the completed one I showed you yesterday, but the two on either side of them in the photo below are not yet finished.

The painting above is called Newfoundland Geology. Those of you that followed our recent five week camping trip to Newfoundland will understand why. This is a place where Pangea broke apart and plate tectonics was proved. Rocks from different eons are squeezed together in jumbled strata each with their tell tale rocks. I found it very inspiring and fascinating, and this painting was a culmination, or maybe only a beginning, of this interest.

It is large at 48″x30″ and done in acrylic collage on an archival substrate. You can buy the original here. If you desire some merchandise with it on it, you can peruse those options here.


I work to amplify good wherever I find it. I love color, texture, beauty, great ideas, nature, metaphor, deliciousness, genuine spirituality, and exploring new territory. I encourage authenticity, nurture creativity, champion sustainability, promote peace, and hope to foster a new renaissance where we all are free to be our most fulfilled, multifaceted, and terrific selves.
