Hooked Rugs and the Bonavista Lighthouse!

A couple of months back i got an email from Carol Butler of Bonavista asking for permission to use my Bonavista Lighthouse photo shown below, as inpiration for a hooked rug she was planning for the Newfoundland Rug Hooking Guild.

I told her that i would be okay with her doing so as long as she provided me with a photo of her and her rug once she finished the project!

Today i received an awesome email from Carol with photos!  To say i'm pumped is an understatement!

This is the original image of the Bonavista Lighthouse i took during the summer of 2006 which has consistently been my best selling image.

Carol sketched out a rough design on canvas.

Carol's Bonavista lighthouse rug is well on the way with only the lower foreground detail left to finish!

Finished Piece!

Once again thanks to Carol who was kind enough to take the time to ask me if it were okay to reproduce one of my photos into an amazing piece of art!  I really appreciate you doing so Carol and seeing your work is more than incredible!  You are one talented lady and i am honored to say the least!
