814 Montreal Winter, Red Stairs, 8x10, oil

sold
I'm tempted to call this work "Never on Tuesday" as parking would be impossible. A little drama. But I decided on "Red Stairs" as that would be better strategically for the search engines.  Will see.

I saw this young family trudging through the snow and just had to paint them. Later they will sit down (rosy cheeks) to a warm lunch in a cozy Montreal apartment.

800 Point Zero, St Catherine Est

sold
This building stands on its own on St Catherine East, Near UQUAM. Many years ago it stood inconspicuously between other edifices like itself. But now it stands alone on the edge of vacant lots.
