Description

Many Newfoundlanders had large families and often homemade bread was served with every meal to make sure everyone had a full belly. Bread was a food staple, made several times a week and sometimes daily! As I think upon my childhood I can see that this tradition certainly seems to be dying as commercially made bread has become the norm over the labour intensive process of making it from scratch.

My Nan made the best as far as I was concerned! If I was lucky enough to be there while that bread was coming out of the oven I was a very happy child. If the bread was not long in the oven, my Nan often pinched off a bit of dough, squished it flat and and tossed it in the cast iron frying pan for me! I’m pretty sure if your roots are in Newfoundland, you know what I’m talking about! YUMMY! I still make bread today for my family and I still use my grandmother’s bread pans.

I recently completed this painting aptly called “Loaves of Love“. I painted my Nan Walsh as I best remembered her and from the view of a child.  She was a wonderful woman who was one of my best examples of unconditional love, positivism, selflessness, generosity and humour ❤ In this painting I tried to memorialize the maternal spirit of all Newfoundland “mother’s” who toiled and worked hard for their family.
