Walking on Water


A Mom and her daughter stroll along Water Street in downtown St John’s circa 1945. I wonder if they’re slowly strolling and twacking, or briskly walking to an appointment? Wouldn’t you love to hear the conversation as they make their way along?

Walking on Water is a perfect example of how an artist can take a bunch of elements and rearrange them into one singular piece. This started with a bunch of historic photos that just called to me. I paired that with a google earth photo and using photo shop, I rearranged the elements until I was pleased with the feel of the piece.

It was almost surreal taking care to make sure that car was heading in the right direction…cars drove on the left side of the road before 1947. It’s just so different that what we’re used to today…more so than the street car coming down Water street on the tracks! Funny that!

Check out some of my reference pictures in the gallery.
