St. Paul and St. PierrePosted: February 27, 2012
I was parked at the corner of St. Paul and St. Pierre streets in Ste. Anne de Bellevue (we have lots of saints in Quebec), happily starting this sketch, when I heard the squeal of brakes and frantic honking behind me. I was blocking the way for a school bus driver who was trying to turn the corner. So I threw my sketchbook across the car seat and in my rush to make way for the bus, my palette and sketchbook flew to the floor. Once the bus went by I circled the block and came right back to my spot, picked my stuff up off the floor of the car, and started again.
