Hope :: Espoir

Courage is being scared to death–but saddling up anyway.
(John Wayne)

It was a warm, rainy day and the geese were flying over the moraine in Rigaud. I have to admit that some days it takes courage to post some of my paintings as I find that I am really struggling with my colours — they are not in my eyes –… I just hope that they will come back, soon! As this has happened before, I hope…

C’était une journée chaude et pluvieuse et les oies volaient sur ​​la moraine de Rigaud. Je dois admettre que certains jours, il me faut du courage pour poster certaines de mes peintures car j’ai du mal avec mes couleurs – les couleurs ne sont pas dans mes yeux comme ils ont l’habitude de l’être … J’espère juste qu’ils vont revenir bientôt! Et ceci est déjà arrivé, donc j’espère …
