From eight to nine

On Tuesday and Thursday mornings I have exactly one hour to paint on my way to work. The past few weeks it’s been sunny and the light is clear, so I drive along the Lakeshore Road in Pointe Claire, advancing by a few parking spots every day, looking for interesting bits of light hitting the roofs of the houses on the south side of the street. By special request I was also planning to do a post today about my car studio but the phone photos I took were awful so I will postpone that idea until a) I clean the car and b) I remember my good camera.

  1. You are an inspiration. I just can’t find the time to paint everyday. I should just do it…even if it is 20 min.

    • Thanks so much Gail. It takes quite a bit of discipline to paint every day even when I really have no time but it has brought so many rewards this year. Will we get to meet in Barcelona? Will you be there?

    Good, good, good. Your work is inspirational to me. Wish I could get to Barcelona, but not this year. In that vein, here is a question, Shari: in all your travels have you run across any sketchers from Istanbul or Turkey? Jan and I are headed there May 21 – June 6 and I would love to meet with and draw with a local artist. Meanwhile, I have come across an urban sketcher’s page for Istanbul, but it looks as if it has not been active for quite some time.

    Great dedication to make use of a slice of time that otherwise would slip away! Rebecca

    • Yes Rebecca. I could probably enjoy a second cup of coffee and read the newspaper for a little longer in the morning but then that ray of sun would probably be gone, I guess.

    I know this very spot. But never imagined there was such beauty lurking there. If only I could do some sort of Vulcan mind-meld and see through your eyes, just once. šŸ™‚

    Excellent post. šŸ˜‰
    The angle makes it really interesting. You can make anything look beautiful, Shari!
