Highway 20

There was an article in the local paper about the reopening of the main street in Ste. Anne de Bellevue after a year or two of road construction, so I made my way back to a favorite spot for sketching. I have painted here many times because I like the little grouping of houses that sit in the shadow of the Highway 20 overpass. There’s still lots of work going on a little beyond where I sat but my view of the corner was good despite some short-term parking of cars and trucks in front of the white house.

    right where the green trees are, there used to be quite a large old red brick school. It was torn down in the early ’60’s I guess in preparation for the overpass.

    • There’s still a stone house behind the white building. It used to house a wonderful café run by the Victorian Order of Nurses. Do you remember that? The desserts were so good (baked by the ladies) that people would order them as they walked in the door. Then they would look at the menu for their meals. Sad that it’s gone.

    Emailing from the US originally from Vald’Or PQ these types of quaint houses remind me of home

  4. Love the treatment of color and depth on the overpass, how it sits back there ominous and imposing over the rich color sitting in its path.
