In the hope of painting :: Dans l’espoir de peindre

Here is the St. James Cemetery in Hudson that I painted yesterday… but only had time to scan in today. Winter is upon us and we had 10 cm of snow today, which felt really nice and my road is white with snow. Tomorrow is my last day of official teaching for this fall semester… I say official as I am far from finished. I have to correct a total of 86 students, with multiple projects each, plus meetings and then starting to prep for the new semester. But no matter, I will have more time to paint, I hope, on a daily basis.

Voici le cimetière St-James de Hudson que j’ai peint hier et que je n’ai eu le temps de numériser qu’aujourd’hui. L’hiver est arrivé et ma rue est toute blanche de neige — c’est beau et ça fait du bien! Demain est ma dernière journée officielle d’enseignement mais je suis loin d’avoir fini. Avec 86 élèves, et plusieurs projets chaque à corriger, plus les réunions et la nouvelle préparation pour l’hiver, je ne chômerai pas. Par contre, je souhaite de tout coeur pouvoir au moins peindre à tous les jours à partir de la semaine prochaine -)
