Fall time :: Temps d’automne

“We should do away with the absolutely specious notion that everybody has to earn a living. It is a fact today that one in ten thousand of us can make a technological breakthrough capable of supporting all the rest. The youth of today are absolutely right in recognizing this nonsense of earning a living. We keep inventing jobs because of this false idea that everybody has to be employed at some kind of drudgery because, according to Malthusian Darwinian theory he must justify his right to exist. So we have inspectors of inspectors and people making instruments for inspectors to inspect inspectors. The true business of people should be to go back to school and think about whatever it was they were thinking about before somebody came along and told them they had to earn a living.”
R. Buckminster Fuller

Fall is a busy time for me as school is in full gear with new courses to teach, family birthdays & visits, a profoundly enjoyable friend meetup for supper last night, the fall season is imploring me to paint it and of course various sketching events. Today was no exception as it was the Montreal Urban Sketching day at the Atwater Market which I missed, the Hudson Artists Plein-Air painting event which I managed to squeeze in late afternoon and of course my goddaughther Marissa’s 17th birthday celebration. So here are two value sketches that I managed to quickly draw while we were under the tent answering questions and inviting people to sketch with us. Twas a packed and wonderful day!

L’automne est un temps très occupé pour moi car l’école est en pleine effervescence avec de nouveaux cours à enseigner, anniversaires de famille & visites, une soirée entourée d’amis pour un souper qui a été fort agréable, la saison d’automne m’implore de la peindre, et bien sûr divers événements en peinture. Aujourd’hui ne fait pas exception car c’était la journée où les Montreal Urban Sketching se rencontraient au Marché Atwater que j’ai dû manquer, l’événement en plein-air des Artistes Hudson Artists que j’ai réussi à joindre en fin de journée et bien sûr le 17e anniversaire de ma filleule Marissa. Voici deux esquisses de valeur que j’ai réussies à dessiner rapidement alors que nous étions sous la tente à répondre aux questions et inviter les gens à esquisser avec nous. Une journée bien remplie!
