Giants - Young Studios

Last summer I had the pleasure of venturing over to Fogo Island, Newfoundland.  It was the Fogo Island Inn http://www.fogoislandinn.ca/ that initially attracted us, however during our visiting we pleasently stumbled upon Young Studios.

We had the pleasure of meeting the talented artist Adam Young at his Studio last summer. Originally from Nova Scotia he had some gorgeous paintings of the Nova Scotia Flag hanging on the walls amongst other unique paintings.  He now calls Fogo Island home and teaches art at the local school while being inspired by Newfoundland's 'sublime landscape'.  http://ayoungstudios.com/

As you are all aware, this past Sunday was Mother's Day.  Every year my Dad and I try and give me mom a unique gift.  This year we decided to purchase my Mom one of Young's prints 'The Red Path' because she loves Poppies. To my surprise my Dad also ordered the print 'Giants' which I had been eyeing for a few months. I fell in love with 'Giants' the moment I saw it on Young Studios social media because it reminded me of my time spent in Hall Beach, Nunavut. 

Heidi Bear surprised me with the 'Giants' print as my Fur Mom gift on Mothers Day!

Really looking forward to visiting Fogo Island this summer and dropping into Young Studios. Until then I can stay up to date on his new paintings through social media. Make sure to follow Young Studios on Instagram and Facebook.
