:: Grand séminaire de Montréal ::

I see and write things first as an artist,
second as a woman,
and third as a New Yorker.
All three have built-in perspectives that aren’t neutral.
— Laurie Anderson

I met up with the Montreal Urban Sketchers yesterday at the Grand Séminaire de Montréal and it was quite astounding! The chapel was gorgeous and the grounds, well… huge! To think that the Sipulcian priests thrived within the seigneurial system from 1675 to 1840 in Montreal! It is my Dad’s passing away day — a great deal of thought for you Dad!

    1. It’s almost from a fairy tale as it is soooo old — 10 people lived in it to guard the fort in the 1600s… and then it became a bread making mill — they must have suffocated in the heat!


    1. Hi Holly — thank you! That was the general idea and I wish that I had muted the new buildings in the background — would have made a better contrast! Boy does it show when we do not paint as much, huh? I’m out of practice -)))

  1. Jane: Another feat which clearly shows your talent as an artist and excellent painter. Don’t ever give it up. MOM >
