Icône du paysage québécois :: Quebec Landscape Icon

Aujourd’hui je savais exactement où je m’en allais… peindre une petite maison que j’aime bien dans le haut de la montagne de Rigaud. Ce que je n’avais pas prévu est que la montagne baignait dans la brume… tellement que ma petite maison est disparue… elle n’était plus là. Donc un petit bout plus loin, dans la vieille partie du village, je lève les yeux pour voir un pôle d’Hydro-Québec et ses lignes électriques — icônes de notre paysage québécois. Et voilà–la décision était prise!

Went driving through the mountain of Rigaud today as I had planned to sketch a little house that I really like… but the mountain was filled with so much fog that it was actually difficult to drive through the twisting roads and the house had disappeared… into the fog. So that plan fell flat… and I ended up in the old part of town and looking up, a tall Hydro Quebec pole and its lines were looming. So that was it… decision made.
