834 Canada Day Roses, oil on board, 8x10

Canada Day Roses
I'm sorry that it's been a while since I last posted. I've been in Montreal caring for my mother since New Years Day. I put even my painting on hold so I could focus on my dear lovely mother in her final stretch in this world.
So now I'm back, unpacked, rested, and ready to paint. Yesterday was Canada Day and a friend gave me these lovely peachy pink roses.  The turquoise cloth and mason jar are favourite props I've had for years.

828 Montreal Winter St-Denis Near UQAM

Lately I've felt like going back to school. I miss my university years. Not so much the challenge of learning but those cold slushy short winter days.

820 Montreal Winter, Fastest Transport, 8x10, oil

It's true. Two wheeled powered by your own steam is usually the fastest transport in Montreal winter. Unless you live next to the metro.

Bousquet is a really charming street at any time of the year but especially in winter. You need a snow shovel for sure if you live here.

814 Montreal Winter, Red Stairs, 8x10, oil

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.

810 Montreal Winter Scene, Shovelling, 6x6, oil

Hockey is considered Canada's official sport. But shovelling snow is the activity that gets more hearts pumping across the country than anything else.

809 Montreal Winter, Young Family, 6x6, oil

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.

My sister had a place in Hochelaga near La Fontaine. This was the view from her back balcony. The cardinal used to visit regularly. Everywhere you turn in Montreal you will see a church towering over the houses.
