Sleeping Beauties :: Les beautés somnolentes

In the province of Québec, hockey is a passion. Every saturday night, when hockey season is ongoing, especially when the Montreal Canadians are playing, my husband and Pyper (our dog) get settled down to watch the game… and within a few minutes, I would say 10 at the most, they become sleeping beauties! And I must add that it is not only hockey that has this magical effect on them — football seems to work perfectly also. So this is my “time” to draw these two beauties while they are unaware of my intentions as drawing “live” people is very intimidating for me. Pyper sometimes seems to have a 7th sense to fidget the minute that I zoom in on him — humph!

Au Québec, le hockey est une institution et une passion. À tous les samedis soirs, quand les Canadiens jouent, mon chum et Pyper (notre chien) s’asseoient ensemble pour l’écouter… et je vous jure, en-dedans de 10 minutes, les deux sont partis au nirvana. Ils dorment! Cependant la minute que la voix des commentateurs s’élèvent, les yeux s’entre-ouvrent pour voir ce qui se passe — pourrait-on dire qu’ils somnolent? Et mieux encore la magie se fait aller aussi avec le football!!! Moi ça me permet de les dessiner à ma guise, au fil des semaines…
