In Love with… :: En amour avec…

I have been waiting for today’s weather for quite awhile now… sunny and crisp, with beautiful long shadows and fresh snow. This has to be my favourite spot to paint in the Rigaud area as it has everything that I need and is easy to park my car-studio. Good light, a majestic mountain, strong winds, farm silos and a road… just missing the few coyotes passing along the road as last night there was a choir of them singing around my house.

I have fallen in love… with Saunders Waterford CP paper -) It is splendid! It can take tons of water, “beads” very well, is forgiving when you want to “pickup” some of the excess paint, “blooms” beautifully when you need it to and agrees to being “pulled”. It is expensive paper but well worth it.

Ça fait un bout de temps que j’attendais une journée comme aujourd’hui. Ensoleillée et froide, je me suis précipitée dans mon  automobile-studio pour peindre mon endroit préféré dans la région de Rigaud. Cet endroit a tout ce dont j’ai besoin… une belle montagne, une rue, des silos, des champs… il ne manquait que les coyotes, qui hier soir se sont regroupés autour de ma maison pour chanter en choeur -)))
