Encounters: Duntara and Keels

 

Duntara and Keels are Newfoundland outports on the Bonavista Peninsula, far from the beaten path. For centuries they survived on what they could grow and bring home from the sea, and on what they could save through the fruitless winter until the ground thawed and the ice left the bay. Their seasonal struggles, the  amazing colors of the rocks and the artifacts left behind are the subjects of these paintings.
