1105 Irises in a Mason Jar, 8x10 oil on board

I picked up these lovely flags from Safeway the other day. They didn't keep long even in the fridge. I had to work fast. I painted the flowers first and ended up painting the jar after the flowers were done...sigh. I'm getting a little bored with the wall paper. I will look around the house for some props. 

1101 Daffodils in a Jar, 8x10, oil on board

I love daffodils. The first flower of spring that appears at the markets. The flower that represents Hope.

1100 Montreal Winter Scene, 8x10, oil on board

I painted this on a canvas board and didn't notice it had a slight dent straight down the middle. So this is one that won't go for sale.

I really like the high contrast in this painting. It is very dynamic and there's a lot happening but it's also very simplified and the centre of interest is very clear. 

1094 McGill Ghetto Night Walk, 8x10, oil on board

This is on Milton facing McGill. Yesterday's painting of the book shop in on the same street. A romantic walk.

1093 Bookshop on Milton, 8x10, oil on board

This bookshop is called "The Word". It always attracts passersby to checkout the books line up on the windowsill.

1087, Guy Street, Montreal 8x10, oil on board

I don't know why that building on the right looks crooked. In person it's ok. I will take another photo tomorrow.

1085 Crescent Street, 8x10, oil on board

Pardon the glare. I'm seriously considering getting some studio lighting so I can photograph these better.

1084 Tabagie Biere et Vin, Montreal winter scene, 8x10, oil on baord

I always liked this building. It's colourful. And you know it's really warm inside because the icicles are abundant (and the insulation not so good). The cats looking out from the upstairs windows lucky to be indoors.  It's not such a cold day by Montreal standards. The kids are having fun.
