Winter street

It’s a gift that the snow has come early this year because I don’t have to search for what the white shapes will be in my sketches. The weatherman promised some breaks of sun today (those radar maps never seems to be accurate!) and I was hoping for shadows in the snow but the sky was overcast, making for a very flat scene. Despite that I was happy to be out in my car sketching the day. I have painted this street in Ste. Anne de Bellevue many times. I’m always attracted to the little sliver of river at the end of the road and, although I didn’t capture it convincingly, an oh so tiny reflection of the houses on the other side.

    Your well-made and lovely paintings and drawings remind me how much I miss living up north. I do not miss so much the drastic change of seasons. But I miss the architecture and the feeling when I look at a street that a place has some history. In my part of Florida we have a bit of that and much more than South Florida, which was settled last. But if someone were to tell me that this is a painting of the little town we lived in up in New York state, I would believe it. Thank you, Shari.

    • I know how you feel Lee. I love that small town feeling and having seen parts of Florida I can understand what you mean about lack of history. One place I have read about in Florida but never visited was Arcadia. That sounded interesting and a bit run down. I also enjoyed visiting Tarpon Springs. A little bit of Greece on the Gulf side.
