Homage à Pierre HenryPosted: April 18, 2012
Years ago my parents purchased a painting from the Quebec artist Pierre Henry. It hung on their wall for years and I secretly coveted it. Or perhaps not so secretly because a few years ago when my parents were downsizing to a smaller apartment, they gave it to me. It has a place of prominence in my house and I look at it every day. It’s a view, looking uphill, of a street in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia and I love it because it’s mostly just street with a few buildings on the side. I’ve been hunting for the right place to do my “mostly street” painting and finally found it in Lachine.
