Took this last Friday!! I wish I had my camera that day so I could have a better shot of that slowly creeping fog hovering the sea by the harbour. So dreamy scene!!

markmedd "Following a request for proposals seeking a "signature public artwork" to be incorporated into the new library, painter and #NSCAD alumnus Cliff Eyland was awarded the $430,000 commission for his proposal to produce 5,000 miniature paintings on medium-density fibreboard cut to the size of old library catalog index cards.

#Eyland , who also worked as a curator at the former Technical University of Nova Scotia next door (now Dalhousie University's School of Architecture and Planning), ended up producing a total of 6,000 paintings divided into two installations. At the ground floor, "Library Cards" comprises 5,000 paintings behind the main reception. A further 1,000 paintings, "eye-popping, two-colour abstracts of books leaning against each other", decorate the living room in the fifth floor cantilever. This smaller installation is titled "Book Shelf Paintings". The paintings cover a variety of themes and subjects, including landscapes, portraits, abstract pieces, and musings on history and libraries. The artist joked, "there are grey landscapes to remind you about why you stay indoors in Nova Scotia to read" and said that portraits of staff at the Spring Garden Road and #Halifax North Memorial libraries, photographed by Mary Ann Archibald, were painted and had subsequently been recognized by some of their subjects.He also stated that the library commission is the biggest installation he has done to date
