Missing Old Water Tower :: Vieille tour d’eau me manque

Here is where the Old Water Tower used to reside… on top of this old building. It was torn down last year for security reasons, and to me, they looked wonderful. I found a photograph of the old water tower that I am planning on painting very soon. In this painting the sky looks so empty.

Voici le bâtiment qui donnait résidence à la vieille tour d’eau qui s’est fait démolir l’année passée pour des raisons de sécurité… c’est dommage, car ces vieilles tours d’eau étaient majestueuses et belles, synonymes d’un temps passé, et qui ont eu leur utilité et leur charme. Il n’en reste plus beaucoup à Montréal et j’ai trouvé une photo de la vieille tour d’eau à John Abbott, que je vais peindre très bientôt. Le ciel a de l’air tellement vide sans elle.
