Dependable Roof

Well here again sketching my roof as the power went out, could not go anywhere until it was restored and instead of looking out forlorn and blah, I decided to paint it again. There has been a few but when there is a lack of inspiration, I can always turn to my roof for support…


Summer is here!

You know summer is here when you see grass and leaves everywhere. Here on the corner of Edouard Montpetit and Lavoie, near my place, I noticed these poor mailboxes lost in the midst of leaves and uncut grass that it looked like a remote street somewhere in the country. You would never know it’s right smack in the middle of the city. I fell in love with both mailboxes, the other one was tagged all over. Easy to hide from authorities tagging in this area as you could escape through blades of grass and never even be noticed.

Goodbye Small Moleskine!

You read right, goodbye Moleskine is an homage to my faithful sketchbook which I was so tired of using since the size and format just didn’t fit anymore. So now opted for the cheapest watercolor sketchpad of 9″ x 12″ for the time being. I always drew larger than life and now I can draw as big as I want and not feel constrained. Here is one of the most beautiful streets in Montreal, Coloniale with its different houses and architecture at every corner. Ah, it feels so good to have space, not like my small little moleskine of 5″ x 8″.
