Art Paper Collages and Creations
Water Test Tiles
Judis friend Debby Rothwell came up with a great
idea. Judi, could you make me small paintings of the
various water test exercises? Id like to print them up on
ceramic tiles. Wed use them for trophies at our water test.
Give a set of six to each qualifying dog. The six tiles would
illustrate the exercises in the division the dog and handler just
Paintings? No. But cut-paper collages sounded like fun, and Judi grabbed her scissors, glue, and paper stash, and went to work.
She eventually shipped eighteen designs to Debby. They illustrated each of the six WD, six WRD, and six WRDX exercises. (And Debbys resulting tiles were gorgeous a trophy the qualifiers were thrilled to earn.)
Here are samples of some of the tiles.
WD Division: Take a Line, Tow a Boat, and Swim with Handler
WRD Division: Double Retrieve, Take a Life Ring, and Underwater Retrieve
WRDX Division: Abandoned Boat, Multiple Person Rescue, and Hidden Victims
For nearly fifty years, Judi has designed
original Christmas cards always, of course, with a
Newfoundland theme. Each years card is different and
its always a challenge to come up with a new design.
Mailing out Christmas cards may be a thing of the past, but
its a tradition Judi loves, and one she refuses to give up.
Those lucky friends who receive her clever cards are grateful she
feels that way.
Over the years, others have asked Judi to design original cards for them. Judi likes knowing shes not alone in practicing and appreciating this holiday custom.
