Here comes the sun :: Oooh soleil, soleil -)

Today was the first day of sun in a very long time and everyone seemed to be thrilled to be outdoors. While I was painting this scene from my car, two men kept walking close to my door and tried peeking at what I was doing. They kept walking to and fro. The municipal employees also came over to check! When the police passed, I told myself that probably they had phoned them to give me a ticket? They seemed to have the time to peruse and wonder why I looked so intent on doing what I was doing. Here is the view from le Chemin de l’Anse in Vaudreuil, overlooking Calvaire Mountain in Oka.

Le soleil est apparu ce matin après une très longue absence et tout le monde semblait être très heureux d’être dehors et se baigner dans ses rayons chauds. Aujourd’hui pendant que je peignais cette scène, deux hommes marchaient tout près de mon auto pour essayer de voir ce que je faisais, rebroussaient chemin et revenaient. Les employés municipaux se sont mis de la partie et eux aussi sont venus voir ce que je faisais. Quand j’ai vu la police arriver, je me suis dit: “Oh my! Ils vont me donner un ticket?” Mais non, la police est passée sans rien voir ou sans me voir. Fiou!!! Voici le Mont Calvaire à Oka peint du chemin de l’Anse à Vaudreuil.
