Barbara has obtained a license from The Art Gallery of Nova Scotia to reproduce seven Maud Lewis paintings in textile form: traditional rug hooking, punch needle hooking, embroidery, needlepoint, wool appliqué and felting. All works by Maud Lewis are copywritten and the authority to reproduce them rests with the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia.
Maud Lewis (1903-1970) is one of Canada’s most outstanding folk artists. Her whimsical and universally appealing scenes of her life in rural Nova Scotia are alive with colour, movement and intimacy, evoking memories of our happy childhoods.
The seven designs offered by Barbara Lukas are: Full Mailbox ; Winter Visit; Covered Bridge With Sleigh ; Full Mailbox ; Winter Hauling; Green Sleigh, a montage of six images; and Horse Hauling Logs.
